Hello there... I have a notebook with some problems. When I saw the notebook the first time it was not usable due to the "Windows Optimal Settings" issue. I tried to remove this problem using:

* RKill
* Malwarebytes

following a procedure found on some forums. The notebook start againg to correctly work for some days... then other prblems appeared and it is now not usable at all.

* Google Chrome does not work at all
* In Internet Explorer searching in google.com seems to be de-activated
* It is not possible to install Avira and other antivirus

I'd like to solve the problem without formatting ;)

Looks like your malware problems are over now... for good...the majority of malware is written for the Windows platform.

How Can I Reduce My Risk to Malware?
