Questions and Answers

I believe I am being tracked by malware?

When opening any video to full screen I cannot fast forward or rewind because an address pops over that part of the screen with an advertiser url.

In the case of a bad URL blocking your video play bar, you most likely have malware on your system. To remove it, you'll need an anti virus program that also removes Malware, such as McAfee, Kaspersky, or Norton. Sometimes malware can block the installation of these programs, so you'll need to carefully follow any installation steps and tips provided to be sure you've completely removed the malware.
