What a piece of cr.. spyware is. I had a particular nasty one this weekend. "NextCoup".
it installs, it registers, it copies files, puts itself in the Chrome exentions, etc...
I had to run Spybot, unintall in Programs&Features, remove manually from disc, delete all occurances in the registry, uninstall Chrome and finally reinstall Chrome to get rid of it.

The uninstall is also very, very low, because it gives a popup:
Do you want to uninstall (large letters). Then a bunch of text and in that text: "Press Yes to uninstall and install another interesting program to help you, ...bla bla bla, click No to just uninstall, press Cancel to cancel the uninstall".

I mean I'm pretty good at this stuff (compared to the average user) and even I had trouble getting rid of it.
They should find out whoever develops this stuff, arrest them and execute them.
(not literally of course)
