"I went looking for a free program and when I started the download I got stuck with some junk. I ran Adware Cleaner but still have Smart Power Ads giving me safety ratings along the bottom of my screen when I open store sites and some store sites now include a tab along the right side which opens offers of items on sale.
I also had a brower hijacker which I can't remember the name of it, just that it started with an A. I also ended up with an icon on my desktop for a game called Cut the Rope from the same place as the hijacker.
I'm guessing I'm still infected and really feeling stupid right about now. Please help."
