That Re-directing issue again

by Herestomo / July 2, 2010 11:14 PM PDT

Hi Folks,
I have read several threads & postings from ppl with the same problem, tried most of them to no avail.
The Malware or Sptware on my XP System is just too elusive.
I have installed & run on a daily basis Malwarebytes. Also Super anti spyware pro and have uninstalled Virgin pc guard & installed AGV.
I'm still getting redirected to unwanted sites & cant get anywhere near the Microsoft site to update.
I am currently scanning system & going to create new & delete old restore points when it's done..
Failing that any more suggestions would be greatly welcomed..
Many thanks

Yeah I'd tried that from earlier instructions.. Finaly sorted it by running 'TDSS'. System seems fine and Windows updating ok..
Thanks for your time and advice everybody. You really are lovely, lovely people.. Happy

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?
