Help, PLEASE! A website told me i needed to update java, so i did... apparently this adware DESKTOP TEMPERATURE MONITOR by System Alerts LLC came along for the ride! (sorry, frustrated! as i'm sure everyone else has been also!) next thing i know browser changed, adds popup, redirected to their webpages in the middle of work and all work lost. finally figured out where and who this came from, but cannot uninstall in programs and features. gives me a list of programs and etc(?) that has to be closed first, unable, told to do manually, still unable but then microsoft flashes message that critical error occured and has to shut down. i've run scans of everything i can think of and nothing. tried fixes, support, and so lost i dont remember what im trying to do at times.
my goals: 1) remove this adware 2) turn windows defender on 3) try to reinstall adaptors: microsoft Tun miniport adaptor, and microsoft 6to4 adaptor #2. without crashing my computer completely!
