Title: Help! awesomehp removal?
Post by: SUVCamel on February 18, 2014, 10:54:51 AM
hi, I accidently downloaded Awesomehp and it appeared in my browser and it was sooo annoying, I am not sure how exactly i installed it, but anyways I found a removal guide and I think it's gone but the article i read said I need an antivirus program to remove it completely. Is that true? Is it still in my PC even If I don't see it anymore? (this was the article if it makes any difference http://www.xp-vista.com/spyware-removal/awesomehp-com-removal-guide (http://hXXp://www.xp-vista.com/spyware-removal/awesomehp-com-removal-guide))? So should I use one, or is everything fine already? thank you, guys :)))
