Loretta’s got a nasty bit of adware on her PC. She writes: Despite having 3 antispam, Microsoft Essentials, Spybot and Malwarebytes a thing named Adware:Win32/peapoon has infected my computer and sends one hundred, minimum (at least), pop ups and ads. I tried everything,..full scans and searching and I can’t get rid of it. The instant I start up they pile in ! I need help in getting rid of it.
Loretta, you’ll want to manually uninstall the program if your security programs aren’t taking care of it. Type “Uninstall or change a program” into the search box in your Start or Charms Menu and click on the results. When the Uninstall window opens, you’ll want to look for a program called Coupoon version 1.8. Either scroll down or search for it in the search box at the top of the Uninstall or change a program Window.
Then select the program and choose “Uninstall “at the top.
