  1. Thank you for the tips. I noticed the virus icon on my desktop and actually deleted it from my computer before I found your tips on how to remove. Now when I try to remove using the steps you recommend, I get this error message form my computers sophos anti-virus program:

    Blocked request: location contains malicious content

    Threat: CXweb/BadDlod-H

    Threat source : http://gridinsoft.com/downloads/explorer.exe
    The requested location contained malicious content and was blocked from downloading.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to execute your suggested removal steps despite this message? I get this message during the first step, once I type “http://gridinsoft.com/downloads/explorer.exe” and press enter.

    Thank you for your time and help!
