    Ok what the hell is Yontoo and how the hell did it install itself on my computer? It has just started showing advertisements on my computer through Facebook and I didn't even install it. Has Facebook or someone secretly installed this thing on my computer and why in the hell of God is it gathering information about me when I didn't even consent to something like this?

    I searched about it and it's in another form called Pagerage; being installed on other people's computer? This calls for a serious WTF and breach of privacy.
