Its a little better. Still halting, but better. I will run Malwarebytes again.

Once you're done with running malwarebytes run SFC /scannow

Open up an Elevated Command Prompt. Click on in type CMD . Right click on CMD under Programs (1) choose . On the User Access Control window click on the Yes button . Command Prompt opens up to C:\Windows\System32>_

Inside command prompt type in

SFC /scannow

I can not find a way to lock the gadgets to the desktop... It would also be nice if I could prevent them from showing options (close, config, etc). I ask because each time I visit my parents, the gadgets have been moved around or some of them are missing... Any suggestions? Thanks! -jake
