I tried to download a file back on 1/15/13 and instead of the file I got Strongvault which substituted itself as a Browser over my Google Chrome as well as a bunch of bloatware programs that came along with it.
I ran the Adware program and that got rid of the Strongvault Browser and most of the bloatware and after making some Tool adjustments with Google Chrome, I got Google Chrome back as my browser.
However, Strongvault is still on my computer and has a Start Menu Icon; essentially, Strongvault allows various pop-ups to appear (e.g., requests for Surveys from various websites I am visiting) and it frequently asks that Adobe Flash be updated.
I just close the box of the pop-ups and don't download anything from this Strongvault Box.
I did go to the actual Adobe website and downloaded an update from actual Adobe website for the Flash Player, but Strongvault still pops-up stating that an update for Adobe Flash Player is needed.
Of course, I just ignore all these messages from Strongvault and download nothing from it. Is there any way to get rid of this???
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Super Anti-Spyware, and Avast! Free Anti-Virus (non-Boot Scan) do not get rid of it.
In addition to Strongvault, 'Internet Turbo' and 'InfoAtoms' are other programs that were installed in on my computer.
'Internet Turbo' was a button on the Strongvault Browser (which I got rid of with the Adware program), but 'Internet Turbo' is still in my Control Panel's list of Programs and also 'InfoAtoms'.
Now, if you try and uninstall Strongvault manually, you cannot and then Strongvault tries to install itself on the computer which I cancelled.
If you try and uninstall 'Internet Turbo', you get a short pause and nothing happens.
If rightclick on 'InfoAtoms' to uninstall, the word "Change" appears.
I followed the steps in this Thread from December:http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=112038.msg879683#msg879683
After Adware, I downloaded OTL and did a Run Scan following the instruction in the December Thread.
