I got this same problem by downloading a pattern that I paid for!! It seized up my computer but I saw in one of these forums that someone suggested trying It is a "bug" program that seeks out this stuff. I tried the free scan and it found 30 bugs. I bought it for 28 bucks,installed it,ran it and finally after deleting all the bugs,that websteroids is running is gone and the icon too. I had uninstalled it 3 times before,but this worked. I was so happy. I am not a computer whiz, so I was thrilled that I could get this resolved. THank you whoever the person is that suggested it.
