So I downloaded a program called UUSee when I was trying to find some software to watch the Celtics game from Spain. The program didn't work, so I uninstalled it from my computer. Unfortunately, an add-on/malware remained. This ghastly remnant is some weird chinese toolbar that displays the letters that I am typing on the screen (whether in WOrd, Firefox, etc...) and requires me to press enter before they leave the toolbar and appear in the place I want them too. Not bad for a word or two here or there, but painful when typing multiple sentences. I have run a few different spyware programs including Ad-aware, Spybot, and SUPERAntiSpyware, and the toolbar is still there. How can I find out what it is and then get rid of it???

Looks like malware from what you say

Please follow all of the steps in this section of the Malware Forum. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum. Should you post in that forum please do not respond to your own topic. Our Malware Staff look for topics to help out in that have no responses. The Malware Forum is very busy with many more requests for help than we have volunteer helpers, so please be patient. If you have not had a response to a topic after 3 days then please go to the Waiting Room and read the pinned topic for instructions.

I will close this topic now. Once you have run the checks then post in the malware forum :)
