    Is that a half-missing Facebook symbol at the very top left? Might be a clue.

    No it's a capital T, even when I x out of it, it comes back when I refresh the screen.

    HOW? Last time I tried that, it closed down my internet, because I couldn't do anything without a hundred pop ups. Constantly

    That looks like some sort of tool bar spyware garbage. Go to "control panel", "programs and features" then look for weird shit in there and remove it.

    I live and die by Malwarebytes. It's saved my ass more times than I can count.

    Downlad the free version, allow it to update itself, and run a quickscan.

    Remove whatever it finds and reboot.

    It that doesn't work, run a full scan. That could take a bit of time tho, depending on you drive size.

    I found a program called Yontoo, did a search, first thing that came up was malware removal. So I uninstalled it, it appears clean so far, but it will probably come back.
    It had google written all over it. :punch:

    It's a great program. Even on Microsofts site they recommend Malwarebytes if they can't fix it :funny:

    I also run Microsoft Essentials and that catches a bug once in awhile :coffee:

    Norton's malware protection isn't great. Malwarebytes is the best for non-virus problems.
