FindRight

What is FindRight?

This adware program injects advertisements with its affiliate ad providers in order to serve a number of ad types including banner, inline text links and popups. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.

Once infected by this common symptoms include:
- Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
- Ads with red click here button will pop up when those links are hovered on.
- Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user's knowledge.
- Browser popups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
- Web pages become extremely slow to download due to the multiple ads.

I just decided to manually delete it, the updater and a file in the bin wouldn't delete, even with administrative privileges. Said it was open in another program, but I couldn't find that program. Working on trying to remove the rest of it now.
