    Before then I'd suggest you go through your Control Panel > Programs and Features and then Google the names of anything suspicious you see in the programs list. If it is ID'd as malware or adware delete it and restart your PC.

    I have some pretty good anti-malware and adware software on my PC but I still get something on a rare occasions and end up having to do that bit of housecleaning.

    I have avast on my computer. I uninstalled norton. but one thing, at the first time, when I was in the process to download the updater, I reviewed the license agreement, and found it was not trustful but I dont understand why norton said it was safe and also avast didn't block me. If it happen again I will make a screenshot.

    Terraforums has no required software to install in order to use the site, so there's no updates or anything to install. Whatever has been installed is not from TF.
