Uninstall File Parade Bundle to remove advert links

  dfb70uk 16:59 20 Mar 2014

Somehow I have acquired this program. There is a uninstall option but it does not work. Microsoft offered 2 methods to remove it but neither worked. Apart from extra ads popping up,certain words are doubly underlined on websites with links to selling websites for weight reduction etc. I assume this is related to File Parade Bundle and would like to be able to remove this annoyance. Please can anyone help. Regards Dave.

It's part of the SweetPack family. Try the free version of Spybot S&D. Download and update then run a full scan. link. Do not upgrade Spybot as it has an Antivirus scanner on it.

That's an unwanted software. If you cannot uninstall file parade from your control panel, then I think you can go to the registry and delete its registry keys. After that, you need to delete its folders on your hard drive. Some information about this nasty file parade click here

That's what I get for downloading Skype at 03:00 on my laptop while on the road without reading glasses! I too opened this account just to post a response and a big THANK YOU for the advice. malwarebytes ROCKS! That SOB had hidden in over 700 threads, and there is no way I could have done it manually.

Hi I can't remove FPBundle, can anyone help me? I'm on Windows 7. I installed Avast which removes the add ons to the browser when they appeared but the FPBundle program still appears on the program list. Whenever I start up the computer using my user name the computer logs me on using a temporary user account, and not the normal one. Will installing a proper antivirus then solve the problem, can anyone help? It would be much appreciated.

Avast is a proper antivirus
