I have a Dell Studio XPS, i5, 6GB RAM, 64 bit, 250 GB ssd, Windows 7 Ultimate,  Kaspersky internet Security, SUPERAntiSpyware and a TP-Link Deco M5 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (which includes MicroTrend anti-virus). I prefer Google Chrome because it loads pages quicker, use it for one email account and have had no problems. Mozilla Firefox for another email account and Internet Explorer 11 which is usually slow to load pages, I can hear the CPU fan running faster and have been getting "redirects" to a page that states: YOUR VERSION OF FLASH PLAYER MIGHT BE OUTDATED which wants me to click on the update button. I hit the ALT & F4 keys and shut down the browser. (I had uninstalled Adobe Shockwave & Adobe Flash a long time ago, although I still have Acrobat and Air) I have also had my Kaspersky triggered and a warning indicating it detected a trojan that it couldn't stop.  I would not normally use Internet Explorer, but a couple websites I am required to use prefer this browser to the others. I've run scans frequently with SUPERAniSpyware, Kaspersky and MalwareBytes, but still have issues. Thanks in advance, I really appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks for your help. I'm performing the recommendation now and I will see how she functions.
