Firstly, please do NOT try any quick 'fixes' or to solve this yourself.

It sounds like it's time to sign up for assistance from one of the free malware removal sites.  Please pick one and stay with them until your system is clean.

Hello and Welcome JAG

Have you tried running a scan with your Norton product? Another thing you can try is running a full scan with the free version of Malwarebytes. You don't need to try the free trial of the paid version, so you can  uncheck that if it's offered. You do have to be careful of installations of free products because a lot of them bundle other software in them which most people don't want.

Download the free version, install and update then run a FULL scan.


You can find Malwarebytes here

If that doesn't get rid of it, don't try anything else. It is time to visit one of the free malware removal sites and register and tell them in the Topic Header what you mentioned here.

Looks like Floplot is going to fix the machine instead

Okay, this thing is a pain in the butt. First, uninstall it via your extensions menu in your browser. Do not close, for it will just reinstall. Go to C:\ProgramData and in that folder will be a folder with a title with a bunch of random letters (mine was "phaakkgdcbmmfefddihoohnomkbbpbmg"). Once you open it, make sure it is the correct folder by looking in a JSON file which will be inside. If it is indeed correct, delete the folder. After you do this, relaunch your browser and it should be completely gone.

Hi i have the same problem with the uni deals popups, i found the folder in the program files.. i try to delete but it states the file is open in another program but there is no program open, can you help??

Re: ads by uni deals

Go into your task manager and look for "Unideals". Your pictures are still under moderation so I can't see them at the moment.

Re: ads by uni deals

Hi, ive done this and still not allowing me to delete the file, it now states i need permission from administrators to make changes to the folder???
Kudos0

Re: ads by uni deals

That's because it's in ProgramData which is a system folder. Are you not the administrator?
Kudos0

Re: ads by uni deals

Its an office computer which i use for work, so the administrator is probably whoever deals with the office computers

Re: ads by uni deals

You'd have to contact your system administrator and have them deal with it then.

Re: ads by uni deals

Due to where the files are located, that wouldn't help. He's not an administrator, so he can't edit anything in ProgramData which is where they are.

Re: ads by uni deals

Hey, please help! When you say go to C:ProgramData do you mean in a tab or on My Computer? :/ I tried searching it online and found the folder but was unable to delete it? I am using Windows 8, perhaps that changes things?

Re: ads by uni deals

Do it through Windows Explorer. Windows 8 does not change anything, since that's the OS I was originally working with that got it. If you are not the Administrator for the PC, you cannot edit ProgramData.

Re: ads by uni deals

ah I see, so I just needed to do it on explorer. Excellent, it's finally gone! :D thank you!
