Thank you so much for this information! This downloaded secretly a few days ago and I've had serious problems since. My anti-virus found six virus and 84 add wares just before my pc crashed. It's been a long recovery process to remove this crap. Restoring the pc to an earlier date didn't remove this program. And until I found your post I didn't know what to look for.

I just removed this rubbish Re-markit from Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer. Remove it immediately. It redirects and interferes with normal browser operations and tries to prevent you from discovering it, to the point that it even redirects you from its own web site. Thankyou for the post.
