    I have Norton, but after I got "hit", it didn't find the Binkiland on my website.

    I have Windows 8 and did remove it from my control panel. But that's not the end of it. I then downloaded anti-malware and it removed 79 infections caused by it. I then had the malware check again and it said it was gone.

    But it's not. When I do a search on my browser it comes up and opens a yahoo browser after it shows up as the main URL

    I have also deleted all my cache-- all my passwords, website urls, etc. from both IE 11 and Chrome.

    I'm going to call Norton next for help. And use the site you recommend for removal, too.

    I think I got it from a website that told me that my Adobe Flash needed an update.

    Just a warning that it's not easy to remove.

  2. It also must have put Price Fountain on my site, too.
