why the #*&^ would you press a red button?

What could happen? A piano falls on my head? Yeah, meep meep mutha $R#$% to you too.

But seriously, some fixes say to use a spyware removal tool. Oh, silly me, that's what I thought I paid good money for Kaspersky for.

So my question is, does anyone know a reputable site I can go to so I can find a spyware removal tool?

It's gotta be an easy one, for like, dummies. Otherwise I'll just go buy another laptop and throw this one in the trash.

By the way, I tried a different browser and something called Yontoo, which I think is a virus associated with Topic Torch, has weaved itself into Google Chrome as well.

I'll try a restore point but it's only letting me choose a restore no longer ago than last week. What's the point? Why don't they allow for some permanant restore points.
