However, the program won’t go away and keeps running every time I boot up the computer. It is really frustrating so I tried to search solution online. However, it didn’t let me access to my Internet. Is this program real or fake? How do I get rid of it from the computer? I’ve already had Norton 360 and I don’t want any other security tools at all. Please help!!!
