Removing PMS/Commercials from Computer

by joevara / April 23, 2004 1:43 PM PDT

My virus program elerted me to the following program that I think is causing pop-ups:

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{FAAC09DF-009C-41D6-8653-2EA3845342E5}\RP27
How do I remove it from my computer? Appreciate your help.

Check with your antivirus software. The program itself may be able to clean the virus. If not, you may need to download a repair from the web site.

Could it be as simple as restoring to a time before
the infection?

Typically that doesn't work. System Restore doesn't uninstall programs aside from things like Windows Media Player. So if you have a virus or spyware installed on your system, system restore is useless in getting rid of it.

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?
