SpyHunter 4 - FREE OR NOT - to get rid of CrushArcade

by jaxsdad / September 22, 2015 8:33 PM PDT

I have been trying to find out how to get rid of Crush Arcade from my Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7. When I did a search on CNET, I got an entire page showing how to get rid of it. The majority of the screen said 'CRUSH ARCADE REMOVAL TOOL - Remove Adware now. On the right side of the screen in smaller print were a set of instructions saying 'Download', 'Install', 'Quick Scan' AND 'Click Removal.
I clicked on the middle part of the screen, downloaded SpyHunter & it went through a long scan and showed me problems including Crush Arcade. BUT no removal without buying Spy Hunter.
NO where did it mention removal required buying SpyHunter. Spare me the 'you should know better comments'. I "assumed that since CNET led me to this screen & especially since the instructions did not mention cost, that I could get rid of Crush Arcade this way with no costs. Have I once again been led astray by CNET or am I just not learning real quickly?? Clay Hesser

Thanks for the information. I'm surprised CNET puts it in such a big ad if there are problems with it. Note: I tried to remove Crusharcade with the normal 'uninstall programs', but it doesn't even show up,

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?
