✔ Best Answer
MaskMe won't show up in your programs or uninstall programs list because it is not a program. It's a web browser extension so it has to be removed from the list of extensions in your web browser.

For instructions on how to remove an extension from Firefox, go here:

Don't ever install or add anything if you don't know how to get rid of it - find out how to do it first!

After #1 above it might be worth downloading and Saving this free program file (ADWCleaner):
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Double click the saved file, do the scan and the Report will show any unwanted (risky) toolbars it finds. You can choose what you want to let it remove then run the Clean - I generally let it remove all it finds

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

'Don't ever install or add anything if you don't know how to get rid of it - find out how to do it first!'
I would suggest to UNCHECK all the free offers or decline them when installing any software, that should work for you.

In other words, you need to read the screens when installing anything and as stated above, un-tick probably everything that is checked.

I totally agree with taking care and unticking all the unwanted stuff - seems like many folk don't do so. Having said that some programs now go ahead and install stuff (or at least the registry entries) even when you've done all that.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Some good advice but talking to someone with such tact like they're 10 doesn't help. "Don't ever install or add anything if you don't know how to get rid of it - find out how to do it first?" A naive or ignorant statement at the very least. Not every item installed gets the ol' yes vote with a pyrotechnics light show or even a small spark before intertwining itself into one's unknowing computer system with the spiraling intent of a tape worm, even when maneuvering by a knowing host.

While your comments above may have some merit, they would have more if you had some time on these forums. This is your first response.
