Xzoomy (FreeScratchandWin)
Removal Instructions and Help

What is Xzoomy?
Xzoomy.com is a search engine directory page that is set as your home page by a site called FreeScratchandWin.com. When you visit the site, you are requested to download their program to play their web scratchcards game. Although you have to agree to their Terms of Service before installing, it appears the software can install by itself through another method as well.

The software complains if you set your home page to anything else but Xzoomy.com
