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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
