Hello, 
 
Programmes such as Freecorder that bundle foistware are not worth the time of day in my opinion. You can find a list of the bundled software by Freecorder here. I would recommend uninstalling Freecorder. 

 

Please follow the steps below, and let me know how your computer is performing once complete. 
 
STEP 1
xEtQetiM.png.pagespeed.ic.6601abWTTy.jpg Uninstall Software

  • Press the Windows Key xpdKOQKY.png.pagespeed.ic.tmAgS1-k6q.png + r on your keyboard at the same time. Type appwiz.cpl and click OK.
  • Search for the following programmes, right-click and click Uninstall.
    • Freecorder (or anything similar)
  • Follow the prompts.
  • Reboot if necessary.
     

STEP 2
BY4dvz9.png.pagespeed.ce.cpqHQmQDB6.png AdwCleaner

  • Please download AdwCleaner and save the file to your Desktop.
  • Windows XP: Double-click AdwCleaner.exe to run the programme.
    Windows Vista/7/8: Right-Click AdwCleaner.exe and select xAVOiBNU.jpg.pagespeed.ic.H5HC6LkiJX.jpg Run as administrator to run the programme.
  • Follow the prompts. 
  • Click Scan
  • Upon completion, click Report. A log (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open. Briefly check the log for anything you know to be legitimate. 
  • Ensure anything you know to be legitimate does not have a checkmark, and click Clean
  • Follow the prompts and allow your computer to reboot
  • After rebooting, a log (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open. Copy the contents of the log and paste in your next reply.

-- File and registry key backups are made for anything removed using this tool. Should a legitimate entry be removed (otherwise known as a 'false-positive'), simple steps can be taken to restore the entry. Please do not overly concern yourself with the contents of AdwCleaner[R0].txt.
 

STEP 3
xE3feWj5.png.pagespeed.ic.JE3sJIzHrn.png Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)

  • Please download Junkware Removal Tool and save the file to your Desktop.
  • Note: If you unchecked any items in AdwCleaner, please backup the associated folders/files before running JRT.
  • Temporarily disable your anti-virus software. For instructions, please refer to the following link.
  • Windows XP: Double-click JRT.exe to run the programme.
    Windows Vista/7/8: Right-Click JRT.exe and select xAVOiBNU.jpg.pagespeed.ic.H5HC6LkiJX.jpg Run as administrator to run the programme.
  • Follow the prompts and allow the scan to run uninterrupted. 
  • Upon completion, a log (JRT.txt) will open on your desktop.
  • Re-enable your anti-virus software.
  • Copy the contents of JRT.txt and paste in your next reply.
     

======================================================

STEP 4
