  1. Pop-up advertisements for apps I do NOT have on my PC.


    This is ridiculous. Every inch of my screen is a potential dollar Microsoft can grab at a customer's expense. Why am I receiving ads for 'Player For Media,' an app I've never downloaded, on my PC while playing a game? Unacceptable, I have paid for this service and I refuse to be a product for Microsoft.

    Pop Up Advertisements


    It seems that when I am using Chrome as my Internet Browser and also using Windows 10, Every time I go to something online that I like to read a pop up advertisement comes up and I have to click the x to get rid of it.
    I have clicked the item to block pop ups but that doesn't seem to help. Is there any answer for this?

  4. Pop-up advertisements for apps I do NOT have on my PC.

    My pc takes for ever to shut down when i restart

    Suggest cleaning up your startup list .There may be many services / Apps you can remove on startup which is not needed on boot or during shutdown.
    Before you shutdown the Pc check what is running in Task Manager as a program or service in not killing the process on shutdown

    Would suggest cleaning up running apps and services -Autoruns, StartupMonitor,HighjackThis,
    Malware Scan - Malwarebytes,ADWcleaner, Combofix
