    You should be able to get rid of it with F-Secure's free Online Malware Scanner: http://www.f-secure.com/en_US/security/security-la... No download required.

    If you gave the program your credit card information, contact your credit card company immediately.

    You should definitely be running an Internet Security Suite -- make sure you find a product that includes anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall.

    You need to get it off your computer.

    Re-boot your computer in SAFE MODE

    To run it in Safe Mode, as soon as your computer turns on hit the F8 key (repeatedly) until a screen comes up

    Choose Start computer in SAFE MODE with network support

    Download and install Malware Bytes and AVAST

    http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware...

    http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    Run a FULL SCAN with both programs - They are FREE.

    Did you download it? or was it included when you bought your computer?

    Either way, try this:

    Open your control panel, Programs and features, and look for the program in the list. from there you should be able to uninstall it.
