    Lately, I have been getting ads on my desktol. I will not allow this invasion of my privacy, once I find out how I got it. My question: Do windows 10 updates come with adware? I notice I have netflix again, which I uninstalled before. I was not asked it I wanted Netflix. What other programs came with a win 10 update that have already shown I do not want?

    :)

  3. "Ads by QuickCrystal" pop-up

    Follow the steps here.

    https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-games-crystal-ads/

    If it is not listed in the Control Panel, or it can't be removed there, move on to step 2. You might be able to skip the step with HitmanPro. (30 day free trial if needed)

    Windows 10 forced download

    I actually had a client call yesterday with an email problem. when I tried walking him through some steps, he says "Yeah, I don't see that there, but I think it's because it's updated to windows 10. It did that a few weeks ago. I came back in on Monday, and it said Welcome to Windows 10"..... I think I'd throw the computer out the window.
