HOW TO DELETE MIND SPARK FROM MY COMPUTER

I am running Windows 7 on my computer.  Suddenly a program called Mind Spark popped up, and whenever I attempt to go to a website I get a question "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer."  My computer security is up to date, it is scanned weekly but I cannot uninstall Mind Spark using the uninstall feature because it is not listed there.  Is there another name for Mind Spark and if so what?  Thanks.

Hi,

 

It often comes with 'My Web Search' - do you see this listed in Programs and Features?  If so, uninstall it and restart the PC.

 

Next, download and install the free versions of MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware on the links below - these applications will not effect your existing security software as they are only on-demand scanners.

 

MBAM

 

SUPERAntiSpyware

 

When installed, run full scans with both these utilities - if any malware is detected, remove/quarantine it and run the scan again until both applications come back clean.

 

Regards,
