    Annoying Search Pop-up

    I have just recently been plagued with this bloody annoying Search Menu popping out from left of screen when viewing the site.

    If this is a NEW FEATURE then you have lost me. If I want to see a menu I will look for and click on it.

    If this is something I have some how caused to happen, how do I turn the annoying feature off.

    Ah,
    Just found the answer.

    I went into the "Control Panel" and uninstalled " WebCake" from my computer.
    Cheers

    I originally suspected it was part of a Windows update but now I'M not sure.
    Believe me, I am a novice with this sort of thing.

    Unlikely to be in a Windows update. Reading those, do not be surprised if it suddenly comes back.

    Sounds like it something that falls in to the Malware category

    I had something on one of my machines about 12 months ago and antivirus software couldn't get rid of it.

    I was advised to use this http://www.malwarebytes.org/ to remove it and it did the job well. There is a free version that should do the job.
