Good evening. :)

PUM = Potentially Unwanted Modification - this is a change to system settings that can sometimes be caused by malware. Please go here, follow the instructions in steps 6, 7 and 8 and then start a new thread and post accordingly.
Please include a brief description of your problem in the new thread, just to keep everything in one place, and somebody will be along as soon as they can to help.

To keep things tidy i'll lock this thread.




So long, and thanks for all the fish.
