StickyPops Detection and Removal

StickyPops is a browser hijacker and search hijacker that attaches itself to Microsoft Internet Explorer as a BHO (browser helper object).  This allows it to hide from your firewall, as well as most standard anti-virus and anti-spyware programs.

StickyPops may redirect your searches through one of its own servers.  So if you search for something using Yahoo’s search engine, it may strong-arm you away from your search engine of choice, and use its own engines instead.

It does this by intercepting DNS queries, which your browser makes to find the correct server for the address you type in.  Basically, StickyPops feeds your computer false information about the Internet.  It’s as though you wanted to visit the white house and your cab driver took you to the ghetto instead.

It may also redirect your browser away from certain URLs and towards others.  As long as StickyPops is on your computer, there are likely to be some Web addresses that you just won’t be able to reach!

You can delete StickyPops from your computer by removing the files and registry entries listed below.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner will perform a free scan for other malicious software on your computer.  The 100% guaranteed, paid version will help prevent future infestations of this time of software.
