Update is ready FFProduct Update(r)

"Update is ready Update and bebefit from enhancements and fixes." keeps popping up on my laptop, without any further information. It seems to be connected to something called 'FFProductUpdate(r)'.

Does anyone know what this is and, if necessary, how to get rid of it?

Product Updater is a potentially unwanted program that is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet.

It needs to be removed and if you Google it you will find loads of advice on removal.

Try Malwarebytes and see if it finds anything.

Thanks for that. I've followed your advice and so far so good.

Unfortunately, I was wrong; it's back this morning.

Thank you; I have seen this and it looks like I'm going to have to take a day or so to carry out the instructions. Still, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Good luck :-)

Thank you, I'll probably need it.

I tried that procedure, twice, and the problem is still there. I'll probably end up having a complete clear out, but I haven't got that desperate, yet.

Sorry to hear that - no more suggestions I'm afraid, short of reformat and reinstall;-)

Thanks for your help, anyway.
