I have seem to have installed some adware by rrsavings by mistake when downloading other software. Following the advice here and from others, I have uninstalled any recent programs and can't see rrsavings in my programs, I have looked under add-ons and don't see rrsavings or anything supicious.
I have also reset my internet explorer, but the ads just keep coming back.
Any ideas? Would re-installing IE help or using a different browser
Thank you for any help

    Hi Artur, notice that RR Savings adware can be hiding under different names in Control Panel (also in Internet browsers). For example in Internet Explorer it can be named "2rs3" or other random letters and numbers... Be sure to double check your Control Panel and Internet Explorer extensions to be sure you have removed any suspicious applications and add-ons. Notice that RR Savings ads can be caused by other adware, in some cases these ads can be implemented in browser add-ons that previously didn't cause any problems. Try disabling all plugins in Internet Explorer and see if the advertisements problem continues. You should also scan your computer with Malwarebytes Antimalware and Spyhunter, these programs can detect and remove RR Savings adware.
