Nuisance pop-up programs

I have recently removed conduit from my startups, but (and I don't know if it is related)now I am getting a few pop-ups one after another and cannot seem to prevent this happening. I suppose I could just agree to the pop-ups which I am asked by WinPatrol (free) if I want these, but at the moment, even though I click "No" , WinPatrol does not store my answers, and the pop-ups start all over again! These are the pop-ups I am getting:

ProgramFiles(x86)TranslatorBar-1.12\ prxt Trao.dll ...and similar ones like Mapneto ....etc

First question, are these programs any good?

If not, how do I dump them?

(Even as I write, they pop up about 6 times one after the other!)

Would like some help on this one, please

As a first step I suggest downloading and running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version.

Maybe download update and run Malwarebytes to see if it finds any problems.

Look in Add Remove to see if Mapneto toolbar is on there if so remove it,or if using Firefox see if it is in your add ons and remove it.

I would try Malwarebytes first though.

I have run Malwarebytes, and it DID detect many problem programs. So I hope that will do the trick! (So far, no pop-ups over my script!)

Thank you both for your help.
