SpecificMedia.GoGoTools Detection and Removal

SpecificMedia.GoGoTools is both adware and spyware.  It spies on your Internet usage, noting the URLs you visit, what time you visit them, and how long you stay there.  It uses this information to deliver annoying pop-up ads and may share its information with third parties.  It may also redirect your searches through its own server.

SpecificMedia.GoGoTools attaches itself as a toolbar to Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer.  In addition to using up RAM memory and processor speed, it has been known to slow down Internet Explorer as well as cause instability with the browser.  In many instances, it has even caused the browser to crash!

This privacy-violating resource hog attaches itself to Explorer as a BHO, or browser helper object.  It does this so as to avoid having to get past a firewall.  Most firewalls will detect GoGoTools as just another part of the browser.

As this program often downloads other files, its presence may indicate that other adware programs are on the system.  A free scan with ZookaWare PC Cleaner will let the careful user know what his or her system looks like from the inside.
