We think the program came in with an email, however PCTools spyware doctor did not detect it....PcTools firewall did warn us about the program and blocked it from access to the net.
The only way I could shut down the popup window was using the Windows task manager.
However, the program had installed an icon on the desktop and a exe file in the temp internet dir. The only way to delete the exe file in the Temp dir was in safe mode--it would not delete allow access when in Windows.
The name or the program is: Preformanceoptimizerpre_installer.exe
When I moused over the name in the search window the creator or company displayed was: Sellmosoft Inc.
After deleteing the desktop icon and exe file, PCtools anti-spy/anti-virus scanned clean.
