Bugs in laptop

  1. I have been trying to re add antivirus from downloaded versions just to have something on the laptop but the messages from 'windows security centre' pop up everywhere and over-ride any efforts and wont let anything happen. I did run stopzilla and found about 50 infections but it is a version that will only find them - not fix them

    Welcome aboard [​IMG]

    Stopzilla is considered a rogue program, so I suggest, you uninstall it.

    Please, complete all steps listed here: https://www.techspot.com/community/...lware-removal-preliminary-instructions.58138/
    Make sure, you PASTE all logs. If some log exceeds 50,000 characters post limit, split it between couple of replies.
    Attached logs won't be reviewed.

    Please, observe following rules:
    • Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
    • If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
    • Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those I suggest.
    • Never run more than one scan at a time.
    • Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
    • The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
    • If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.
    • I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me.

    Thanks Broni
    I did read that set of instructions but I will be surprised if I can do that due tot he messages from windows security centre popping up everywhere which even stops the internet browser opening to download anything in thwe first place
    I am very much a novice so will see how I go.
    cheers - Rod

    Try to restart in Safe Mode with Networking and see, if you can operate your computer better from there.

    Start with downloading and running Malwarebytes.
    It should take care of most issues.
