Hi,

As you can tell by my name i'm not very good with computer's so please be gental.

I downloaded some music software from c.net yesterday, which i have already deleted, but i now have some 'mix dj search engine' everytime i open a new window. With my 'very' limited knowledge i can't find it anywhere to remove it.

Please help!!

Thanks.

I'd be careful of anything from C-Net.
Been a few reports of added stuff.

Thanks very much.

I followed the instructions at http://malwaretips.com/blogs/mixi-dj-search-removal/ and used AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it seems to have worked. Just hope it stays away!

Cheers for your help!!

Just keep reading those screens before installing stuff.
A lot have the "Yeah, you can install that toolbar etc..." box already selected......Not good.

Glad to assist & hope your comp stays clean & safe.
