Speedbit Video Accelerator programover a year ago
Speedbit Video Accelerator will not delete. It says it is open in another program. I have tried all that I know. It no longer appears under Control Program as I removed it already from there, but it still opens up my Google every time. I have gone to Google settings and keep changing it from Speedbit to google and deleted speedbit but Speedbit keeps showing up!! Help. I also removed all DAP from my system.
