PhotoScape download messed up my FB page...help!
Hi friends...yesterday I downloaded a free photo editing program called PhotoScape. Ever since I did that, my Facebook page is behaving strangely. I had no idea this would affect Facebook. There are also new buttoms named "Change layout" and "Remove layout" listed under my FB profile settings. Those items were never there before. (And nothing actually happens when I click on them!) I don't know whether the strange behavior is from the download, or if it's just another annoying thing about Facebook. There are all sorts of ads that pop up now including ads about editing photos, which is why I believe the download has something to do with it. Does anyone know how I go about fixing this, and get my FB back to normal? I've removed the photo editing program---but FB is still messed up. Any help leading me in the right direction would be appreciated!

I figured this out. Turns out, when I downloaded PhotoScape, it also activated something called PageRage and Yontoo layering on my computer---visible mainly through Facebook. I assume PhotoScape is partnering with these two sites to litter FB and your PC with ads. I disabled PageRage and removed Yontoo from programs. What I find so annoying is that this crap just takes over without authorization. But I learned something....so that's a plus!
Enjoy the day, friends.
