Adware Won't Go Away - Windows 8

Recommended Posts

Hi my name is Casey. The problem I'm having is slow performance, internet popups in all browsers, and programs crashing.  Unfortunately, I tried using your software just to delete the spyware, but it didn't work. So this means the emsisoft scan came up with 0 problems detected. I'll try to do the next best thing and include a copy of the formerly quarantined files.


Thank you for your help!

OK everything performed exactly as instructed!


A windows update tried to occur during the JRT scan. I immediately cancelled it, and then everything proceeded normally.


That Fix button seemed to have lived up to its name =P   My computer is running much better.


Are there any other things to do to finish the removal?
