Just In Case You're Infected..

Uninstall Malwarebytes first. Next, download the "rkill" file from one of the links below, then run it to help allow the removal programs below to run. (courtesy of Grinler at
There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then try to run the other one. Be patient.... as a black window should open, then close after finding all the background programs.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.


Once that's done, reinstall Malwarebytes, update it, then run a full system scan with it.

And just as an aside, I use SuperAntispyware on this Windows 7 Pro machine and have had no problems so far.

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?
