VisualBee was everywhere after that. I went to the Control Panel to delete it. It was still there even after rebooting. What to do? Search.
A normal search of VisualBee produces results that look pretty credible… after all, my daughter uses it at school, she says. But in the process of downloading there are checked boxes that need to be unchecked! Little extras get installed if you are not on the lookout.
There were many indepth discussions and postings of how to get rid of the software, and many were just too complicated and verbose for me to want to bother. I was concerned that I would have to hire someone to clean it off the computer. But thankfully I found a Yahoo! answer that gave instructions clearly and simply. It did the trick for us – http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
I still don’t know if VisualBee is legit… but it’s not being installed on our computer again.
