  13. Good morning Rick, a few questions first ! 1. Are you using McAfee for virus protection ?? It can slow down a computer especially while loading ! Windows Defender which comes with Windows 10 is a great protector, that is all i have ever used & never caught anything !! 2. Is this W10 system ?? Thanks Chuck PS. Rick there is no sign of Farbar ever being ran !!
  14. Rick try this program !! Download https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/otl_(oldtimers_list_it).html to your desk top !

OTL.txt (open on your desktop).

  22. As a web browser, Chromium is inherently less stable than Chrome, which means it crashes more often and can exhibit other types of undesirable behavior. So in my opinion as a Malware Removal Specialist i would stay away from it, i do not need my computer to crash ! Chuck
  23. I really don't think Jeff would have posted this if it's not true ! He usually does a lot of research on these things !! Chuck
  24. Did you right click on your task bar & see what each process is running before you shut it down ? And is there anything you do not recognize ? Chuck
  25. Howdy hpg3, hope you are well ! This could be a spyware program, if you want to start me a topic in the malware removal section, i could have a look & see if there is anything there ! Chuck
