Solid Savings adware is a web browser plugin that displays coupon deals and other advertisements when users visit various online shopping sites. Solid Savings adware should be removed as early as possible. I run a web site with various ads on it and I noticed a user who was infected with this had ads that were not from my site, so I assume the program was hijacking my ads.

I downloaded a program, and then something called "Solid Savings," "whitesmokeb, conduit LTD" installed, instead of the program I was looking for, then Norton Antivirus after it was installed, it told me it was unsafe. Now I can't get rid of this and the other things.

Solid Savings Plugin has installed itself on my PC but there is no C:\Program Files\solid savings folder. I can't find where it's hidden or how to uninstall it. The adverts are intrusive and irritating. How do I uninstall this uninvited plugin from my PC and prevent it from returning?
