This is a very annoying problem...
In Firefox and Chrome ~( I'm using a desktop windows 8 pc) pop ups are out of control. Every time I do a web search an advert pops come that is difficult to close.
If I look in the extensions, in both browsers there is one there called UniDeaolis This word usually appears somewhere on the popups, so I'm fairly sure this is the source of the problem. I don't even use firefox anymore so was surprised to see it there.
Every time I delate/remove the extension, it's back again on next reboot. There are 5 users on the pc. 4 out of 5 of us have this issue
My subscription with mcafee is fully upto date and all scans/updates show as clear
I've tried googling this but nothing ever comes up for UniDeaolis
I have tried the microsoft malware removal tool, and also the freeware spybot programmes - no joy. I have also looked at the add/remove programs section but cant see anything suspicious.
Any advice appreciated
It looks as though you may have inadvertently picked up a Potentially Unwanted Program. Try running the McAfee Getsusp Tool,
to get it in the GTI Data Base. Please enter your Email address under "Preferences" before scanning.
To Keep Malwarebytes Free, do not enable any Free Trial Offers, or Activate the Paid/Pro Version.
All the very Best
You may find these two articles most informative, as to how this may have arrived on your system :
Also I might mention that Spybot S&D is no longer considered to be compatible with McAfee. Please disable the Tea Timer if enabled, and uninstall. For Both applications could Clash/Conflict causing you to become infected.
Always remember, Running (2) Security Programs with 'Anti-Virus' capabilities will cause issues.
