Computer Security & Viruses/can't uninstall



I'm not sure if this is your line of expertise. However I'm having a problem uninstalling a program entitled utorrentcontrol2 toolbar. It just will not uninstall I click uninstall and nothing happens. I've removed it from extensions and it's still there when I search.

If you could help I'd much appreciate it or even if you could point me in the right direction.



Actually, the utorrent toolbar by Conduit is an adware program, so you've come to the right place.  Download and run AdwCleaner according to the instructions posted here:

If, after running the scan, you still find the search results have not changed, you may have to change your search settings in your browser.  Let me know and I will help you with that if needed.

QUESTION: Thanks Brian.

I run the cleaner and cleaned it. But it's still there. So I'm assuming I have to change the search settings as you said.

How do I do that?

Hi Dan

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  If your search is still being redirected, you will need to change the default search provider under the settings for your browser.  Let me know which browser you are using so I can give you specific instructions.
