‘A few days ago I downloaded firefox (I usually use Chrome). Piggybacking on firefox was a bunch of other programs. Mostly malware/spam. I went crazy deleting, even deleted firefox. Now I have this extension in my chrome and in the regular internet explorer. The add on is Solid Savings. What it does is add additional ads to my facebook page (that only I see). Adds links on websites I view.... etc. I have googled this solid savings in an effort to remove it and I know it's very bad type of adware. The trouble is when I try to remove this extension or add on it won't let me remove it or delete it. I need to get this out.’
