Removal of Double Click virus or spyware?

Jump to solution

There's something on my pc called "double click".  McAfee doesn't detect it as a virus or spyware and its very irritating.  Any thoughts on how I can get rid of it?

Double-Click isn't really a virus and isn't really malware either.  I would call it an annoying cookie perhaps.

Try running one of the free anti-spyware applications listed in blue about half way down here: https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-2168

I know of a piece of adware called DoubleClick, which has been around for a while. It can be removed, probably quite easily. But before we get going, what are the symptoms, and how did you realise you had this?
