Do you have it as an addon in Internet Explorer? Then try deactivating it there.

It was probably installedl while you downloaded some game from Arcade Candy.

Thought for sure someone else would have this problem too, but the forum search came up empty. Arcade Candy is sending me ads for almost every page I visit online. Help! How do I get rid of this, and by chance does anyone know how I got it in the first place?

Hi goldembossed, welcome to IObit Forum! :-D


After following solbjerg's advice, if you can't get rid of it, please open athread in Spyware-Malware Removal Help! section and follow the instructions in Guidelines for requesting malware removal assistance thread there and wait for a Malware Fighter to respond.


Your thread is moved here from New Threats Submit [NOW OPEN !] section.
