Windows 7: pc loaded with bad stuff. browsers especially.

pc loaded with bad stuff. browsers especially.

so I ran malware bytes... it found and removed tons of things. but Im still getting popup ads in IE 11 and chrome.

chrome and IE are so bad I cant even open them, tons of popups, ads.

so, I ran kapersky virus remover, and malwarebytes, and mcafee.. all removed lots of stuff... but this pc is not right. what am I doing wrong?

I cant seem to remove stuff in the browsers.... ? I know little about IE, never used it much... lots of fake warnings to update flash, pages going to fake PC help or repair sites...

I see some of the stuff in IE add-ons, but its not letting me remove them. honestly I dont have much experience using IE... I've avoided it for years and tell others to do the same.

so, how can I get this stuff out of chrome and IE? any tips appreciated :)

Try resetting IE. You are downloading too much and not unchecking boxes when you do. You have to slow down and pay attention.

thanks for the fast reply.

did an IE reset. no luck. I see an add-on called "PrinceCouponu" with no option for removing it. many ads had this word under them. its under the not available section, but it's enabled and I cant remove it.

none of those are showing up in remove programs. search snacks was found in some logs, so was flexible shopper spelled differently. but their not in remove programs.

something called multiplug was found by the virus programs and removed.

How much of RAM do the x86 and x64 versions of Win 7 get to be loaded
Hi guys, Consider we have installed Win 7 x86 on a machine with 4GB RAM. How much of that RAM will be gotten by the OS itself, to be completely loaded. What about the x64 version of Win 7? What about if we have more or less RAM, please? Thanks in advance.
