What is this and why it is not going away offers4u.org ???

Last few days offer4u.org adware has been bugging me. It keeps popping up every browser (explorer, fire fox, chrome). Have tried to uninstall it but keeps coming back. 

Have tried

1.   Full System scan

2.  Clear temp files

3.  Computer registry search to find it

4.  File search

Nothing is working, please help. Thanks

I have always found Adwcleaner great for removing garbage such as this from users pcs.It can be downloaded at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

Malwarebytes is also very handy at getting rid of adware. Either or should work just fine.Just a word of advice,nothing in life is free.If you frequently download free software, theres usually some adware,or something similar bundled with it.You get what you pay for..it may be worth it to you to cease from downloading free software. As a matter of protocol, it can save you a lot of headaches.

Thanks for your help and advise. I am paying for Norton Security and don't download anything on my laptop. I have no clue how it got in to my laptop. To me looks like Norton Security in not doing its job.

It looks like you have picked up a PUP, a Possibly Unwanted Program. While they are annoying, they do not cause damage to your system. Some people actually want the 'Features' offered by these programs. They are usually downloaded alongside a legitimate download when you do not uncheck the option for the additional download.

Norton products concentrate on malware that can damage your system, that is why some PUPs are not detected.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
