Have you tried running a malware scanner.  Try running malware bytes and cc cleaner.  These will remove any malware that is on your system.

Hello -

Note that CCleaner is not a Malware remover, just a Temp File cleaner - As your problems keep repeating after rmoval, please let the Experts handle this -


Please follow the instructions in ==>This Prep Guide<== starting at Step #6.  If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.


Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

NOTE : Please Copy / Paste all logs requested, and do not use Attach unless specifically asked -

Good luck and be very patient, as the area can get very busy.


If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.



Thank You -
