really sneaky and insidious application
About 2 weeks ago, the incredibar popped up on my screen while I was trying to unload some application on line. I clicked on 'NO' but it made its way somehow into my laptop (I use windows 7 operating system). Every time I opened the chrome browser, the incredibar startup would show up. I read several suggestions on line, and I tried everything - all programs, manage search engines, setting the home page , and then even reboot the computer. It would seem to go away for a couple of times and then afterwards it would show up again. It was so frustrating, I did not know what to do. After everything else failed, I resorted to restore using an automatic back up that was taken by the system few weeks ago (before this wretched incredibar started to show up on my system). Even then I kept my fingers crossed, fearful that it may be lurking somewhere and will show up again. It has been a week now and it never showed up. Looks like the restore worked. Fortunately I did not install any software recently, so it was quite painless. So, if all the things you normally do to change the start up, then try the restore using a prior backup. Hope this helps.
