I could not fine a category for my question, so I am posting here.
I downloaded a program called Mindspeak which included instructions for uninstalling. However, the instructions are misleading because Mindspeak is not listed in the uninstall index nor is there a help category on the toolbar as the instructions stated for uninstalling. I would like to get to my files listed on the hard drive to be able to delete from the files. I did check for any unfamiliar files that would hide Mindspeak. Help.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

I'm not familiar with this program, can you please post a link of the location from where you downloaded it?

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

There is here: Remove ANY Mindspark Toolbar from IE, Firefox or Chrome

But you really should have our virus team follow along with you:

Please read all of the following instructions found here: https://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...lp-305963.html

After reading all of the instructions found above post the required logs in a new thread: Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help

Please note that the virus team is very busy and will get to you in due time. If you do not get a reply within 72 hours then you may bump the post.

Do not post any logs here!

Lots of results from google, perhaps Corday just picked the wrong one.

The browser hijack theory sounds more likely.

Looks like Mindspeak is a PUP.
