should I have them remove it? I remember doing it earlier, but it then caused the windows explorer to open up every time I booted up my computer. I had to restore my computer to a earlier save state to "fix " the problem I guess. After the restoring back to the earlier day, when I ran malware antimalware I had to redowload it since it's files were either unavalabile or corrupted.
anyways not sure what I should do

**** UPDATE
I ran avast's quick scan as well, but no results or any signs of concerns popped up so...?
