Once upon a time, 1 or 2 weeks ago, I was looking for a way to download albums of my favorite artists because I had to delete my previous library of music. I was thinking "maybe I can get a program to download songs from Grooveshark."
I downloaded Scilor's Grooveshark downloader, in the installation process it asked me if I wanted to apply that sweetpacks search engine yadda yadda. I declined, I didn't know what that was, but it still HIJACKED my browser like my stubborn cousin comes over uninvited.
I searched the web for solution but couldn't find one, but I learned that Start.sweetpacks or whatever it's called is a browser hijacker created for advertisement, yea at first you might think it's simple adware, but it also says that the effects grow, that it corrupts the files overtime and it can even end up crashing my computer! Bad things have already happened, my laptop's touchpad driver has been corrupted, I removed it, and installed a new one. At first I installed one from synaptics website, and it worked, I was happy, next morning I turn my computer back on after an update was done the previous night, the cursed touchpad couldn't move the pointing cursor!. Now 1 day later it corrupted my keyboard, I restored the system to a date before the G.Shark downloader happened, my keyboard was fixed, but my touchpad was still corrupted, and the dang sweetpacks was still there. I tried removing it from programs, it doesn't show up anymore in the list of programs, but the start up engine is still there and i'm afraid more files might be hidden inside! Please help! Also a side note, my touchpad driver is in hidden files on device manager it says.
