Findingdiscount removal


Recommended Posts

First time on this forum.  It seems that all of my browsers get hijacked and redirect to me to sites selling spyware removal, etc.  There is a folder called Windows Discount that contains an executable file but I am not able to remove this with either Control Panel or by directly trying to delete it under windows explorer.  Thank you in advance.
