Terri, this My Search Dial is malware. I found a ton of hits when I Googled it. I forget... did you run deep scan with Malwarebytes?

Oh yes I ran it and everything else I could find. I knew it was malware shortly after I realized it was on my PC. I did a no-no and updated my Glary Utilities from, gee, now I can't remember. It sent me there I think, so I d/loaded it and I think that's where I got the malware? Wow, looks like I got a 2-fer. lol

I'm headed to bed, tired and cold. I realized my link to Glary said "the system can not find the path specified" so I went looking for it, no link took me there, I did that all by myself. Perhaps I can figure a way to get rid of it tomorrow.......I'm tired of worrying with it tonight. sleep

Not sure why you have this utility, but depending on where you downloaded it from, you probably got this 2-fer there. I recently read a tech blog about downloading software and how we all need to be extra vigilant for these free-loaders they put on our computers. Many of the places which we used to trust for downloads have become some of the worst culprits. Even CNET has gone to the dark side. After 3 terrible experiences with them, I no longer download anything from them. They were even mentioned in this article as one of the ones you really have to watch.

Google this malware for tips on how to remove it.

Hi Drac. I ran AdwCleaner and I think that got rid of it. I need to update the software on my Cyberpower but not too sure about the website, it's in a foreign language. Do you have any idea where to look for an update?
Which reminds me. When I d/loaded the new version of Glary I noticed I also got something called Filepuma by Glary that shows I need to update some of my software and it has the update links. What is this about? I have had Glary Utilties on my pc for years and am now rethinking it, perhaps I should just uninstall it.
Thanks,
Terri

What website are you talking about that is in a foreign language? What software do you need to update?

Glary seems to be a legitimate program, but anything that installs something that I don't want raises red flags with me. Filepuma also seems to be legit, but I would be VERY leery of it. They both sound like completely unnecessary programs - not bad, just unnecessary. Any time something tells you to update software (what software, by the way?) and then provides links just raises more possibilities of bad stuff piggy backing again.

Maybe someone else here has some experience with these two programs.

I'm glad the subject of the ad on the homepage came up. I was afraid to ask about it.

I have also been signed out of the forum a couple of times recently but not today.

Well, it doesn't seem to be hurting anything. I just wasn't sure why it was there, and at first I wasn't sure had it always been there and I just hadn't noticed.

I'm just glad to know that it's not something that shouldn't be there.

I don't understand this myself. I did have to re-download my AdwCleaner but did so on Bleeping computer. I could not get it to go to the foreign site again, I think it might have been french or german, can't remember. I love AdwCleaner, don't know what I would do without it!
As for glary, guess I need to remove it. I did go into the Glary updater and found a lot of interesting software, some I'd never heard of. I believe I had Glary Utilities before I got CCleaner, years ago.
If I get the message for AdwCleaner again, either saying it's outdated or it's a missing link, I will try to get all the info and make note of it.
Thanks.

Okay, so now I keep getting signed out. One day I had to sign in three times in the same session. I have cleared my cookies from this site and have deleted all of my temporary files on internet explorer.

What else?

Oldbroad,

This may be a dumb question, but when you sign in, do you remember to check the box that says "Keep me signed in"?
(Or something like that.)

Gil.
who's forgotten to do that more than once

I went to agree to the fact that I also keep getting signed out when I realised I had been signed out even when I had only just signed in this morning!! think

Do you clear your cookies before or after you check the box that says "Keep me signed in"?
It is a cookie that keeps you signed in to Gameboomers.
