CouponDropDown does not show up in the extension page in chrome. I really need help as it is really annoy me someone help?

  2. I use Firefox and I have this virus. It does not show up in my extensions or in my add/remove programs control panel. From other websites, it said there would be certain downloads such as “Online HD TV” or other random names but those aren’t present on my computer. I have McAfee and when I run the scans it does not get rid of the virus. I followed the config instructions for Firefox but both were already default and couldn’t be reset. What should I do?
