I’ve accidentally installed an add-on that I don’t want. It’s called “Deal Cabby”. I’ve uninstalled it on “Programs and Features”, but the problem still seems to persist. How do I remove this thing completely?
Dealcabby virus is a dangerous and malignant adware program, which is an allegedly helpful browser plugin that declares to improve your Internet surfing. It is closely associated with Isearch.babylon.com virus and Search.babylon.com virus. By using the same tricks, it will install additional programs on your computer system, such as unwanted toolbars, add-ons or some start-up processes, which could lead to annoying website diversions.
Users who get this virus installed will find their browser are messed up with this infection. Every time you open your browser or click on any search results, you will get Dealcabby virus showing up as a toolbar or browser add-on that starts interrupting every search session of the user. If you manage to disable it, you will find out the disable button is greyed out. It also has an enable button, but that’s greyed out too. Your add-ons managers says it’s unavailable, but somehow it’s still working and giving you advertisements.
