Recently, I have installed some free programs which downloaded from the Internet. And I found I was redirected to some websites that I have never heard about; also, when I was watching video online or playing games, I got many pop-ups. I realized there is a program named Tanzuki Ads in my computer, and I thought that stuff is the problem about all these things, so I tried to remove it, but unluckily, I failed. I still can find it in my computer even I have removed it from the control panel. How can I completely get rid of it?
