My roommate, a computer-savvy fellow, turned his computer on today only to find this shit installed, with a Firefox Add-on too. It doesn't appear to be a virus, but we're both baffled at how this got there. He hasn't installed anything in years, so it can't be from a missed bundled installed or something.

Internet searches yielded nothing, so I come to you /tech/. Any idea how this shit got on his computer?

Guess, possibly visited a site and was moving to another site, or whatever and clicked enter or space bar at just the correct time. If nothing was installed for years, was possibly browsing on a admin account. Browsing on an admin account this will definitely happen sooner of later.

Packaged with another piece of software (such as Acrobat).

I got another one for you guys. I need a nice mouse with a relatively long wire, something ergonomic and fit for gaming without all the bells and whistles. My roommate says I should go with Razer. I don't know much about Razer, but something deep inside me is screaming not to go with that brand.

Mouse preferences?

Punch him in the dick for me.

Logitech or Corsair or something. Razer build quality is atrocious. They're built 100% to feel the most impressive at first. At this very moment, my Razer mouse is crashing like a motherfucker while my Logitech is trucking onward endlessly.

Also the lower the voltage your mouse runs at, the more it's out of spec with the Omron switches they put in them, and the more likely your mouse is going to develop bouncing and double clicks.

A wired mouse running at 5 volts is not running far out of spec. A wireless one running at 3.3v is running WELL out of spec and may run into issues where it can't even reliably cut through the normal wear and tear and corrosion to hit its rated number of clicks.

The kicker is that even the wired mice might still be running 3.3v controller chips in them so we're just fucked.

Replace them with Japanese Omrons if your mouse buttons break. They're a completely different switch with lower voltage rating from the normal Omrons and clones.

Razer switched to cloud enabled drivers that require login to bind macro's and shit. It's garbage now. I switched to Steel Series after that.
