I have a Dell 1545 with almost nothing loaded on it. Had auto updates on (I KNOW, I KNOW..sigh) and the critical updates that installed "hacker security patches" caused my puter to do a System Restore upon the re-boot. My free avg scans were FAR too clean...I mean ZERO problems. I knew that was suspicious, as like most of us I have the ADTP(cant remember exact acronym) tracker cookie from Windows ALWAYS show up, and that went away. Constant problems for days. Google Chrome is browser. I checked EVERYTHING..finally, I tried to create new user account, suspicious. Sure enough, the name "Scammer Hacker F@ck" was already in use. Ha! I uninstalled free AVG, and tried PC Dr. They found 4 low threats, and 77 tracking/malware problems, but wanted me to enter cc info online (What???) before fixing. Sooo installed the free TRIAL of full AVG and all seems FINE..but found nothing. I need some serious help and guidance....pleaaaassse. Thank you SO much!! Barby
