Hijackers--Conduit, VAF, DomalQ, etc

by Spackle / May 21, 2013 10:11 AM PDT

The hijackers seemed to take over my computer-changed my webpages, lots of pop-ups, ads, etc
Tried everything and finally after a scan found Spyhunter 4 identified the hijackers and was able to clean the computer.
Would like to see CNET comment on Spyhunter 4--and hear from others. Their pricing is pricey ---

Many Use Good, Free Tools

Rkill, Malwarebytes, SuperAntispyware, Hitman Pro.. If you're looking for on-demand scanners to clean up infected computers, all seem to perform well without a cost. Unfortunately, and I know it's been quite a few years since it was listed as such, Spyhunter's "rogue" background keeps myself and some others away.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
