It started Monday afternoon while I was trying to play Canasta on Pogo.  Now it appears to have infiltrated my whole computer.  I need it gone

The first thing to note is that these don't come from Pogo and have nothing to do with Pogo.

 

I found quite a lot of articles about this when I searched. This link gives you details of how to manually remove the malware from your computer, so please read this carefully and follow the steps: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/bettersurf-virus-removal/

 

Hope this helps.

First of all Better Surf is not a virus, it is an adware. You will get this when you tried to install some free application in your computer and this is also installed as an add-on. Usually they are called browser hijacker. You can remove this adware by simply following the steps below.

1. Uninstall the program first in your computer: Go to control panel > Click Uninstall a program >Uninstall Better Surf

2. Remove the Better Surf  add-on or extension in your web browser.  Internet Explorer - Open IE - Click on the gear icon then go to "Internet Options" - Go to the advance tab - Click on the "Reset" Button - Tick "Delete personal settings" and then click on reset. This will fix your problem surely. Good luck!
