Best answer:

Answer by Person
free trail of what program. I need details. Remove it then download Avira, malwarebytes,super antispyware and comodo firewall
Use this to clean off computer.,

Download malwarebytes and superantispyware then run scans with both in safe mode by tapping F8 on startup and selecting safe mode. Run a scan with all both programs and your problem should be fixed.
“Can’t install or run Malwarebytes?”

-Try renaming the mbam-setup.exe if installation fails.
-Try renaming the mbam.exe if the program installs, but doesn’t run.
-Try starting in Safe-mode with Networking if program fails to install, run, or update. (Hit F8 key repeatedly when computer is starting after a reboot.)
Then Free ones are almost as good but you will need to be sure to get good products like Avira or Avast for Anti virus and malwarebytes/super antispyware for antispyware. Spybot is not so good anymore dont get it. Pretty much stay away from AVG and spybot. (remember only have 1 antivirus at a time)
You will also need a firewall i suggest comodo or Zonealarm.
