Now he will not let firefox go online , keeps comming up w/ not responding and stalls, takes aprx 5 min to open when i click. Ie works fine , There are alot of new office programs installed too. I know that some of the best spyware is in office programs , word etc., There is alot of sending going on to a program, cant remember name right now i will look. I am running a new comp , and havnt done any upgrading hardly , yet and am running Vista Home Advanced, HP pavillion entertainment pc, lap top.

(physically)from web & any networks locally connected. Unplug from Cable/DSL/Disable wireless which ever you use (you dont say). Disable any non local shared items like web printer sharing, call for help etc.
Beyond this we'd need info re OS Retail/OEM, Browsers used, MS or Sun Java (which version) & any protectors onboard & how/updated. How long happening/restore points pre-dating etc.etc.
I'm no expert but others will help once they have info to work with.
Basically you need to cut off his fingers! Post back. Good Luck. Happy

Use another computer to download the following then save it in a blank CD or flash drive:

SUPERAntipspyware - http://www.superantispyware.com
Next, download the core and trace definitions at http://superantispyware.com/definitions.html

Insert or plugin the CD/flash drive to your computer. Disconnect to the internet.

Install SUPERAntispyware. Click no to update and cancel the scan. After installation, exit SUPERAntispyware

Unzip the content of PROCESSLIST.ZIP and PROCESSLISTRELATED.ZIP into C:\Users\**YOUR USER ACCOUNT NAME HERE**\AppData\Roaming\SUPERAntiSpyware.com\SUPERAntiSpyware folder (replace the existing files).

Reboot to safe mode. Open SUPERAntispyware then run a FULL system scan.

See if you scan with that program and if it find any infection. Let us know how it goes.

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?
