Quikshield....what is it???

Hey all,

This program randomly came up on my computer. Is it spyware? I don't know how to get rid of it.

A quick search shows it is a pop-up blocker
It looks like it could be some type of stealth spyware..

Well I sure as hell never installed it. I couldn't find any way to get rid of it. Did your search turn up anything?

It looks like there is an "016" entry (ActiveX Objects) in the HiJackThis log referring to the QuickSearch. I didn't see any other entries (so far). You may want to remove it via HiJackThis. I have a download link in my sig.

EDITED
Alternatively, you can see if you reconize it in the C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder and delete it there

END EDIT


After is is cleared, download SpywareBlaster and get the current updates! Adaware is also reccommended

I've been using adaware. It's updated and never picked up on it
