Been having a problem with my browser and I feel there's some sort of adware in my system, but I've fully scanned my entire system completely using Norton 360 several times and I haven't had any luck. I also looked through installed programs in the control panel and went deleting all programs that I didn't need, didn't know, and didn't like the sound of, but that still wasn't the solution. So now i've decided that the next best thing to do was use system restore, only to find that for some reason I haven't got any system restore points at all, which I find weird since restore points should be saved daily. I've checked that system restore is turned on and so is time management so I don't see why system restore points aren't being created.

So there it is, 2 problems:
1) Adware that I can't remove
2) System restore points not being created (automatically)

Any Suggestions?

Are you by chance dual booting with another OS?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
