connectso
« on: January 17, 2014, 08:56:10 AM »
i keep getting a program called connectso downloading into my extension of my settings of my google chrome. it (the program) changes my home page, and does a few other things that i have to change back. When i delete it, my computer runs slow and in have to reset my computer to get into anything. is there a way to make my avast program aware of this so it will not let it in again?
