I had Malwarebytes and Malwarebytes Anti Root Kit ( beta ) Super Anti Spyware, Cleaner and ADWcleaner and Antivirus. That shop installed Conduit Search And Protect. I deleted all Conduit and give laptop to my Brother after I got it running good and got the crap ware off. I found that ADWcleaner worked best to get rid of all Conduit, not to mention I couldn't change home page it went right back to Bing.
    This new laptop I got is Acer Aspire S3- 391 Windows 8 with the same programs as I had on the GateWay except my antivirus with this windows 8 is Windows Defender, really defender in 8 is very good its mixed in with Essentials. In 7 it was terrible. Thanks, Chuck
