    How to remove RocketTab, Rocket search and rocket find. Firefox all websites untrusted.

    I haven't been using my computer much of late and a heap of software updates came through, I must've missed one of the check boxes and ended up with a nasty advertising program called RocketTab. I noticed it because in firefox all websites were listed as untrusted which was very odd, I went to IE and did a search for this and found ads were showing. I use an adblock and all the security options in IE as a browser of last resort when everything else isn't working. I was shocked to see ads and went looking for why.

    I found RocketTab and looked at removing it, I just went to:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features

    and then found RocketTab and removed it, however others have had more difficulty and needed to remove from all browsers separately, here's a guide on youtube on how to do all those options:

    How to Remove Rocket Tab Ads in 1 Minute Manually w/ 3 Steps- Chrome, IE, FireFox


    Rocket Tab Ads is malware that you installed without your knowledge.

    Three easy steps for all three browsers- Google Chrome, Internet Explorer (IE) & Mozilla FireFox.
    1- Uninstall RocketTab from add/remove programs. Note sometimes it will be installed with a different name- BrowserSafeguard , Ad Show, AdProtect, etc
    2- Open your browser, remove/disable RocketTab in the Extensions
    3- Reset your browser-- take note your browsing history, favourites, etc will be deleted. -this last part isn't quite true, FF doesn't - I didn't delete bookmarks, I didn't reset other browsers.
