  1. Thank you very much, this v9 was driving me mad as I could not seem to remove it. Thanks to you I am now v9 free.
    Again thank you very much!

  2. I have v9 on both of my browsers–IE and Firefox .I am 73 years old, have suffered a stroke and broke a hip on the same side as the stroke and this was supposed to help me “relax”! To top this off, I am TRYING to make it on a budget of $740 and I can’t–life is a bitch. . .

    Anyway, I was having a small amount of pleasure going on the internet and then v9 came on and I can’t use my computer anymore because Firefox won’t work at all and IE works intermittently. When I pulled up your advertisement and went to follow your instructions, nothing happened. I don’t type much anymore because my right hand just doesn’t work the normal way: it goes where it wants to and it is not where I want it to go. . . So, what can you help me with?

  3. Hello, try to download a SpyHunter, it should detect and remove the virus automatically, so you will be able to use your computer on a daily basis again
