Hi,I'm on my 11 year old sons PC which he only plays games on and listens to youtube with. However I have found it's difficult to get anything done as somewhere along the way he has infested his PC with who knows exactly what sort of Malware or third party junk. 


We took it back to the computer store to help remove it but there is stuff in there that is very difficult to either remove or find. 


Can we find a way to get it cleaned up a little to make it work a little better.
