How to find out if your computer is infected with the Superfish adware and remove it

LastPass has created a Web tool that makes it easy to check to see if your computer is infected. You can check by simply clicking on this link. To manually check for the Superfish adware and uninstall it, head to the Windows Control Panel, select Programs and click Uninstall a Program. Search the list for VisualDiscovery. If it is there, click the program and select Uninstall.
 
You're not finished yet, though, there is one more step. You must also uninstall the Superfish certificates. Start by clicking the Windows Start button and typing certmgr.msc in the search box.
 
Launch the certmgr.msc program, click on Trusted Root Certification Authorities, followed by Certificates. Search through the certificates for anything mentioning Superfish Inc. Once you have found the certificates, right-click them and select Delete. To make sure you have fully removed the program, restart your browser and revisit the LastPass web tool.
