    Well Jack each to his own my friend and I am NOT blaming Windows 8 for anything what gave you that idea is beyond me. I should have stuck with 7 if this is the reaction I am gong to get from being in this forum.
    never intended to start an argument ,but this did from your 2nd post

    and this a great forum ,don't leave ,maybe i should /will
    Jack I was simply making the statement and I took your comments as a bit untoward - perhaps I was a bit hasty too and no for you to leave the forum is counter productive my friend as I think you will agree if we cannot sort this out amicably then it will be a sad and sorry day.
    Therefore I am apologising for causing you to feel that way and I think we should just carry on and try to make the forum a better place I for one am not perfect far from it and it is probably something I have done that has brought about my problems.
    I have since wrecked my install anyway by foolishly trying to alter the registry without backing it up first and now have to start all over again. So you see I really am no genius

    Jack it was six of one half dozen of the other as far as I am concerned nothing in life is as easy as they would have us believe.

    I have IOBIT start 8, and its flawless, not one issue or popup.

    What I have noticed is where you download your programs make a big difference, many many websites add an installer to these free utilities and MISLEAD you most horribly!! Unchecking the toolbar box is not enough you must also click decline as well, even when it appears that clicking decline will abort the installation, which it doesnt. Also the disagree or no thanks option is greyed out as if it is not an option when it fact its still a viable option you just have to click it..

    As far as removing spyware,adware,viruses, and trojans... Its best to remove these from safemode.
    Spybot search and destroy usually kills these bad boys, but its most effective in safemode when the problems are entrenched and load as a service..

    Another beast is when a virus hides in your system restore files or in a hidden partition that is not scanned unless you can direct a scan to it directly.

    Hope this helps...

    I agree Brooklyn I am usually very aware of those creep in jobs but obviously I must have missed one. I have completely wiped and reinstalled the 8 now and am in the process of setting up and being very careful this time.

    Hm, if Brooklyn says he got it to install without adding extra goop, then he did. Ya probably got tricked into installing something. You gotta look ant the install process carefully. That's why I avoid all IObit poopola, it is very hard to avoid installing this poop. They get money when it is installed, because it forces IE to show those ads. They get money on clock throughs, see?

    If TDSSKILLER and Malware Anti-Rootkit didn't find the culprit, you may want to try GMER. Also try Eset's sirefef finder. One way to see if you have Sirefef is that your Windows Firewall will no longer work. Sirefef removes it.

    I downloaded Iobit Start 8 from Iobit.com which then connected me to cnet.com with no ad-installer. IObit Start Menu 8 Free download, Bring Start Menu back to Windows 8

    I fear we will eventually have the Internet Police, nobody wants them but it may come!

    These intrusive add-ons get installed despite our declination, costing us $billions in pc repair, cleanups, and re-installations!

    I originally though, that any software bundled with IMGBURN was probably safe. I had harsh words for the guy who makes IMGBURN, but he has no control over it, it's the guys who distribute IMGBURN. But when I made that complaint, I got a dozen or so troglodytes jump on me with "It's free software, so quit complaining" - Like HELL, then bundle it with Java or Flash or something, not with Shite-ware.

    Well I got the one referenced from Z in post#13 installed and so far so good it must have been along with some of the apps I loaded I reckon as I was blown and carried away by the sheer number of them when I first installed it.

    Now the speed is even better it seems this time as i timed my boot for the Toshiba L550 laptop i5 430M @ 2.27 and 8GB and it was 16 seconds to the first screen. I compared it with my Ivy Bridge with the i5 3570K @ 3.4 8GB @ 1866 running 7 and it was 28 seconds and the Ivy has the supposedly superior Samsung 830 SSD (laptop has the SanDisk Extreme) and both msconfig start up mods on both!
    So the 8 has to be faster by a fair margin I think.
