Delete the (scam, my words) program, as it will not even look at removal of over 75% of real problems.
It's been pretty good for me, but it's allowed some annoying things through.
It is generally useless and any decent Antivirus program will far excede this Pay For Removal program.
It also contains a Registry "cleaner" / "altering" program that has no idea of good or bad items installed on your O/S -
It is really dangerous to go online without a decent (even Free) antivirus.
Without one, you are extremely likely to get infected. I can't tell you which one is the best because determining that is generally not feasible; however, I can give you my strong recommendations for programs that I have tested and that I trust. All of the following are excellent free (not free trials of) antiviruses.
Be sure to only install one.
Microsoft Security Essentials (what I currently use)
This can be added to with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and SuperantiSpyware Free or in paid/active versions -
Anything except Slopzilla -
- Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium Toshiba Laptop - ORCA and Proud user of Internet Explorer Browser - And I Use GOOGLE-
