Hi
I would love to follow your recommendations but I can't even get on the internet on the affected laptop. The icon on the bottom bar shows that I am connected; but when I click Internet Explorer is says it can't connect. What setting should I change so we can begin? Thank you so much.

Okay now I have what looks like the start screen for MBAM ... except it has the button to scan and it also has a button called "purchase". Does this mean I have a fake MBAM now???

Malwarebytes has a free and a commercial version.

The commercial version adds things like real time detection, so the purchase button
doesn't (necessarily) mean you have fake.

Hopes this helps. :thumbsup:
