We consider spyhunter as a tool to be avoided at all costs.

I checked 2 removal guides found with google, and they said the same:
1. Remove with Adwcleaner (free)
2. Reset the infected browsers.

It's not a virus. Just a browser hijacker.

I didn't say "analyse with MBAM", I said "remove with Adwcleaner".
I didn't say "some reboot". I said "reset".

I mean the same as Google does when telling how to do it. It's the first hit if I use their search engine to search for reset chrome.

Adwcleaner is another program then MBAM, so it does different things. Since it's free, why not try?

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?
