    Activate UAC
    Means User Action Control, the little box that pops up when you click on something to run....in a sense it involves administrator rights.

    I think you should had clicked on that because I use mine.

    Thread re-opened

    This is the message that was sent:
    ***************
    During this past December and January, I downloaded and ran a number of tools that you suggested in the thread "Persistent Warning." The "popup" that had led me to seek help has never occurred since we concluded. At the end of our thread, you suggested that I employ Adblock, which I did, Since then, my laptop has been freezing very often, especially when I enter Facebook. Several times, I have seen a banner at the top of my screen saying that a Script, or a Website, was slowing my browser and asking what to do. It offers a couple of options: one says "Wait" and the other says "Stop It." Neither has been any help. My laptop is freezing up far too often, and I need help.

    Should I start a new thread, or do you want to reopen the "Persistent Warning" thread?

    After reading a WHILE, I chose to run "Restore Firefox." I am currently trying the browser to find out if there's any difference. Will let you know.

    I barely got started trying out the refreshed browser when the old popup/audio warning came back up!!!

    It warns not to shut down the computer. Task Manager says it's Firefox, but I turned it OFF using Task Manager, and then used Firefox to get back online and send this message.

    Suggestion?

    AdwCleaner
    • Download AdwCleaner and move it to your Desktop
    • Right-click on AdwCleaner.exe and select Run as Administrator (for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users)
    • Accept the EULA (I accept), then click on Scan
    • Let the scan complete. Once it's done, make sure that every item listed in the different tabs is checked and click on the Clean button. This will kill all active processes
    • Once the cleaning process is complete, AdwCleaner will ask to restart your computer, do it
    • After the restart, a log will open when logging in. Please copy/paste the content of that log in your next reply

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~``

    Malwarebytes
    • Download and install the free version of Malwarebytes
      Note: If you have Malwarebytes already installed, you don't need to install it again. Simply start from the next bullet point
    • Once Malwarebytes is installed, launch it and let it update his database. You might have to click on the little arrow by Scan Status in the middle right pane for it to do so
    • Once the database update is complete, click on the Scan tab, then select the Threat Scan button and click on Start Scan
    • Let the scan run, the time required to complete the scan depends of your system and computer specs
    • Once the scan is complete, make sure that the first checkbox at the top is checked (which will automatically check every detected item), then click on the Quarantine Selected button
      • If it asks you to restart your computer to complete the removal, do so
    • Click on Export Summary after the deletion (in the bottom-left corner) and select Copy to Clipboard.
    • Paste the content in your next reply

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

    RogueKiller
    • Download the right version of RogueKiller for your Windows version (32 or 64-bit)
    • Once done, move the executable file to your Desktop, right-click on it and select Run as Administrator (for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users)
    • Click on the Start Scan button in the right panel, which will bring you to another tab, and click on it again (this time it'll be in the bottom right corner)
    • Wait for the scan to complete
    • On completion, the results will be displayed
    • Check every single entry (threat found), and click on the Remove Selected button
    • On completion, the results will be displayed. Click on the Open Report button in the bottom left corner, followed by the Open TXT button (also in the bottom left corner)
    • This will open the report in Notepad. Copy/paste its content in your next reply
