    1. Hi Carol,

      Thanks for your tips. It really works unlike don’t know how many website I looked into and the number of anti-malware, spyware I installed just to remove this.

      In addition to Carol’s tip:
      Pricechop have made a lot copies of itself thruout your computer. It’s file name cannot be search but you can try looking into all Browser related folder in:

      C:\Users\

      For my computer it had made over 20 copies of itself. It doesn’t appear in your web browser as long as you deleted the certain sources of your web browser but I personally prefer to delete them off fully from my computer to prevent any risk of virus attack.
