    Welcome to TechSpot! In this forum, we attempt to find and remove malware. While it is possible that malware could be causing all or some of this, it could also be related to what you have running on the system.

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    NOTE: If you already have any of the scanning programs on the computer, please remove them and download the versions in these links.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .

    • If you have questions, or if a program doesn't work, stop and tell me about it. Don't try to get around it yourself.
    • Follow the order of the tasks I give you. Order is crucial in cleaning process.
    • File sharing programs should be uninstalled or disabled during the cleaning process..
    • Observe these:
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
