Hi I have truly annoying problem, GADGETBOX is hanging there both on Firefox and Chrome and no matter what I do it is still there.

I did these steps to remove it:

Uninstalled from the search engines - did not worked

Uninstalled all associated progams - did not worked

When I try to stop the process in task manager the process is not there;

When I try to remove the malware files from program files I can not coz it says I need permission from trusted..bla bla

I am registered as an administrator and I even changed the owner of these files, but still nothing works.

Going nuts, pls help!!!!!!!!

Thnx Angelina

Hi and welcome to TSF

In add/remove programs, do you have a program called SProtector ?

It appears to be a plug in in Chrome running at start up.
