Hey, I have read, and executed lots of different ways to delete Search Miracle from my computer but I still keep getting these popups. I have updated all my virus scans, they are Norton Antivirus, Spybot, Spyware Blaster and Ad-Aware Personal SE. Still the popus keep coming.
I was just wondering if you could help me fix this problem of Search Miracle.

Sorry for the late notice.
Thanks for the help, but I think that I worked it out.
I went the the search miracle homepage and followed a link to uninstalling it.
It hasnt bothered me for the last 3 hours so I hope it will keep going.
I am sorry for the bother and thankyou for answering so quickly.
If I continue to have problems I will let you know.

Thankyou again

Thanks for the update Ben, Glad to hear you have it sorted out,
I will leave this topic open for a couple days in the event you have any further problems,

Here are some tips for helping to keep your computer from getting reinfected,


Download the following program, For keeping crap off your system to begin with
Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests. Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox. Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Download Spyware Blaster

Keep Ad-aware and Spybot handy, Check them for updates prior to running and run them weekly
Same with your Anti Virus,

For an added check run an online virus scan, you can use one of the 2 below,
TrendMicro's HouseCall
ActiveScan

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program
Download and install Cleanup
Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

Remeber to Check Windows for updates

Probably a good time to create a new restore point See Here Name it clean or something like that,
