    Another way to get rid of it is by resetting your browser settings to default and removing Via new windows settings panel. Some applications might not be listed in the control panel but is visible through apps and features panel available in settings.

    By the end of this, SSOption will be fully out of your system. SSOption normally hijacks your browser and makes changes to your homepage settings and keeps popping up or opening new tabs while you are using your PC which is annoying. The bandwidth usage will also go high and your computer will start to lag after sometime. This product was meant to create high traffic for advertising firms by creating fake links meant to disrupt you when using your PC while sending some data in background.

    SSOption normally comes bundled with freeware software. Most people install it without their consent only to find out later when it has become a problem. Always install software programs you are familiar with to avoid problems.

    To fully remove out of your system, Go to Settings -> Apps -> Then click on apps & features scroll down then find SSOption applications and click it to uninstall. Also consider removing any other application that looks suspicious because sometimes these apps uses a different name to hide identity.
