Yea so i downloaded sumthing a few hours back, and i kept clicking yes to every pop-up that came up, which is sumthing i don't normally do, and it's all messed up now. I've got this SideFind in my computer that when i try to uninstall, doesn't go away, it's hangs up my computer, and i gota shut it down manually and restart it again. that's on the uninstall, I don't know what other problems i might have, but that's just about it for now. Please help me with my problem, i really don't know what to do.

So, this is happening on a linux system? What distribution and what browser?

I may be oblivious to this, but this is the first i've heard of spyware on a linux box.

I think the chances are pretty good that this is a windows box, and that they signed up to this forum w/o realizing this is linux-only. smile.gif
