Windows 7: "Drop Down Ads" by "Yontoo".

27 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit
"Drop Down Ads" by "Yontoo".

For a while now, I have been getting these stupid P.o.S ads popping up on my websites while my mouse hovers over them. I have looked up online on how to get rid of this trash, but they all say the same thing. However, Yontoo Layers is NOT in my Uninstall list of programs in the "Programs and Features" control panel. I also looked inside the registry; it's not there! It is also in NONE of my webbrowsers extensions either. Yet I am still getting these rediculous ads!

How the hell do I get rid of this garbage? There the hell is it hiding on my system?! Their uninstall instructions are utterly useless since it's no where to be uninstalled.

Edit: It is also no where in my "Program Files" location either.

Edit: I am also already running MalWarebytes atm, it is still scanning my system for the past 40 minutes. I am currently waiting on that, but my expectations on it are low.

Edit: Also, what programs make me install this crap with their own software so I can tell it to gtfo?

Since no malware removal product is 100% effective 100% of the time, you may want to run some additional free on-demand scanners. They may find something that Malwarebytes (or others) missed.

Windows Defender Offline

ESET Online Scanner



I also found this info from Spybot S&D:
