Im wondering why webroot products (internet security plus) doesnt pick up these hi-jacker files in there malware scan. I removed them from 5 computers of mine, win xp to win 7, after searching for a week to find out what was wrong with them. They were crippling. Webroot did not detect them. And since i removed them I have detected more of them on my gaming computer and webroot didnt detect them either. These things are nasty. why are they being ignored. I have been running webroot on my computers for a month and 1 of them was freshly installed with win 7 before i installed webroot and the files still came in. I dont know what im doing wrong. I am not ignoring warnings either and am logged in before going to the net.

Webroot does detect and remove some of these, and more are being added all the time, but mostly the ones that just plain cannot be removed by normal means and/or those that enter the computer with no warning at all. A lot of this 'crapware' actually piggybacks in with downloads that you want, like Adobe Reader, and can be opted out of prior to installation.
Please see this KB Article regarding removing these, and you can also contact Webroot Support for further assistance as well.
