Hi Everyone  Not used to posting on these forums and stuff but here goes.  I am new to this web sight and found one of the videos by Matt helpful.  After using Adw Cleaner and Junkware removal I still have 159 threats according to something called Spyhunter which is about half what I started with.  One of them is called Solutions Real.  I have tried everything and searched the web for something helpful.  I have the paid version of AVG and IObit Malware for the other.  I was able to remove some of the stuff with Malwarebytes.  I was able to remove the biggest threats.  According to the Tech at AVG the remainders are not harmful. However, like anyone I want the stuff off?  Any ideas?

Can find where they are hiding.  Tried programs, settings, registry, tool bars.  Any suggestions?

Run computer in safe mode.  Run TDS Kill, malware bytes, and then adw cleaner.
