    Hi, thanks for the link. I did a scan and it found 68 files so I did a quarantine and restated the computer, but it still is slow and I have the fastest internet , so I know that's not the problem other then the popups and all the ward adds. So what should I do now sent I did that, I was thinking of just re installing windows but there is more then a t bit documents and software that I need and I do not have the money to upload everything to a file upload site. Any Idols would be really help full. Thank you so much.

    Download Slim CCleaner. Click Tools, click Startup. Disable anything unimportant that you don't want to run at startup.

    Right click on the Taskbar, click Task Manager. With Task Manager click File, click Run new task, type in cmd, click the admin privileges box, click ok

    The Command Prompt will have opened. Type in sfc /scannow

    press enter

    When that has finished, type in chkdsk /f

    press enter, type in y, press enter

    restart the computer and a disk check will run

    Download Farbar's FRST & Service Scanner. You can also try his Minitoolbox tool. With that one, check all boxes but the ones with List for them. You can download the tools from Searching for farbar
