      Hi,

      I accidentally downloaded this virus while trying to download a driver for my web cam. I have removed Sweetim from my Google Chrome extensions, ended the process on Task Manager and deleted it away from my c:/ . That worked fine and my browser has since returned to Google Chrome and I don’t have ads popping up now.

      However, I noticed something recently that seems to suggest that Sweetim is still in my computer system. Say if I’m playing Farmville on Facebook for like 10 minutes, a separate Sweetim browser suddenly pops up. Any ideas why this is so? I’m thinking of scanning my registry entries and manually delete anything that is left out, but I’m not sure what to look out for.
