AutoCompletePro Help!! Okay here's the summary: Recently a few days ago, I decided I would convert a video from YouTube into a dvd. I downloaded Freecorder and DVDFlick, it made changes to my computer. But after downloading it, I learned that Freecorder's process of converting videos allowed for viruses. Also, it changed the appearance/toolbars of my web browsers of Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. So I tried un-installing it but I wasn't able to get rid of it. So I uninstalled Mozilla FireFox and removed the toolbars, but I wasn't able to get rid of it entirely. It left some files that were empty shells, example: a folder that was named Freecorder. No matter how many times I deleted the folder it would always come back. I decided I would rename the folder and delete it, it never appeared again. I then installed Mozilla Fire Fox again, the newest version I think. I uninstalled DVDFlick in fear that it was virus filled too. Thinking I had no problems in my computer, I began to normally search and surf the web. Next, I noticed this "AutoCompletePro" Problem when I was typing in DeviantArt's search box. It gave me suggestions of things I never wanted to see. And it was very similar to this other person's picture. http://forums.malwar...howtopic=106199 Clicking on one of the suggestions lead me to a different search engine with no name. After searching on what this "ACP" was, I found out that it was some sort of virus. I tried uninstalling it in programs but I could not find it anywhere. ACP had a disable function but whenever I pressed it, it would always come back. My question is, What is AutoCompletePro? How can I get rid of it? Where did it most likely come from? Was it from Mozilla or something else? Is it safe? Do I need to worry? Please help me out, I'm really worried, and I'm not very tech-savy when it comes to these virus things...
