Boot into safe mode with networking (f8 on startup). Download, install, and update malwarebytes. Do a full system scan.

Delete current antivirus software, turn off windows firewall.
Run Panda Internet Security Active scan (use Panda only, don't fall for any free "cleaner" software)
Then Install Panda Internet security (trial 30 day version)

This will keep the crap out.

1. NEVER download "free antivirus" or "free system cleaner" software.

2. You get what you pay for. If it's free, you will be sorry later. :sol: 



That's complete garbage.

I use a combination of Avira and Malwarebytes. I also have Norton 360. Avira and malwarebytes are just as, if not more, effective than Norton.

The only reason someone would 'be sorry' for using a free AV, is if they download some noname program, or download it from joeschmo.com.

I use Avira, malwarebytes, and ccleaner. All are free. All are very good programs.

I'm starting to think you're a Panda sales rep working on commision.

It's free because the companies make money off their full versions. The free versions are stripped down, basic forms of the full versions. They want you to try their software so you'll purchase the full version. Not to mention, they make more money on allowing ads on their sites.

You're spreading misinformation, and you really need to stop.
