I keep getting this warning, and with it an entreaty to call 1-888-292-3809 (and probably pay a lotta money) so they can "remove" all the adware/malware/pop-ups (although THEIRS is the only one I'VE seen so far). It also plays an audio which is most irritating, when there are other things to which I'd rather listen.
I tried running Windows Defender on it, but the computer acts like it doesn't have the CPU "horsepower" to run the program. 
Any good ideas concerning ripping the obstreperous extortion thingy that keeps interrupting my REAL computing?
