Greg will likely completely reconfigure your system and clean it out.

You should mention to him that you may have uninstalled Adobe Flash and Malwarebytes and anything else you are unsure about.

Have you in fact paid for the paid version of Malwarebytes? Or did your credit card cancellation mean that didn't happen?

You could use the free version of Malwarebytes, but in your situation the paid version is probably better because it PREVENTS bad stuff from getting on your PC. The free version does NOT prevent. It just REMOVES bad stuff after it gets on your PC.

Malwarebytes and MSE work OK together and should be sufficient for your purposes.

But worry about that later. Mention it to Greg.

The first priority is to ensure you have a working and clean PC. Then worry about Malwarebytes.

I've never known Greg to be gone from these forums more than 24 to 48 hours, so he should be along soon enough. I did send him a private message about your situation.

This is a safe site with reliable help. You should continue to be wary of scams or trying to get help from unfamiliar sources--800 numbers, Geek Squad, etc.

I think Greg has taken care of the problem with Team Viewer. Thank you for helping. We really appreciate it.
