 Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.

Probably a good idea to follow the directions there first....clean that up.....and then see if this problem persists. Quite possibly the two may be linked.

It looks like you have Torcho Web or Torcho.com on your computer.  As I understand this, Torcho is categorized as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) with malicious tendencies.  I would suggest following the instructions in your topic in the Am I Infected forum.  At this point you can't discount the possibility of there being other infections, so it's important to take care of this problem first.  Attempting to address other issues before addressing this could exacerbate your problems. 


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You have an open topic in Am I Infected, which is here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/536541/cannot-uninstall-torcho/

 

Please post in that topic that Speedial is on the computer.

 

To avoid confusion, please keep all discussion of these issues in the AII topic.
