Like the other reviewers I can't seem to get rid of it. Yet. Haven't given up hope. This is a component of Webroot antivirus, which until now I was happy with as a product. Now I'm being blocked from sites that Google Services wants to refer me to (even an AMAZON sponsor link!) just because Mama Webroot says no.
