Good day. Similar to FAR RESH, I was able to use the uninstall (although from many attempts to do so). The program no longer showed in the list of program but still continued to be activated. After running many adware/malware apps including the ones you recommended, it appeared to have stopped. I also have no files or extensions in my chrome or explorer browser as you suggest to look in. However, when I run a search of "websteroids" in my computer directories, the results return approx. 20 files with the word "websteroids" in the title of the file. Some are .dll, ., , , and so on. Should I simply delete those?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Malware - short for malicious software - is an umbrella term that refers to any software program deliberately created to perform an unauthorized and often harmful action.
Viruses, backdoors, keyloggers, spyware ,adware, rootkits, and trojans are just a few examples of what is considered malware.
A few years ago,it was once sufficient to call something a 'virus' or 'trojan horse', however today's infection methods and vectors evolved and the terms 'virus and trojan' no longer provided a satisfactory definition for all the types of rogue programs that exist.
