Okay you are also going to need to run the MGADiag tool. Instructions are here:

Run the tool and post the report.

i am never installing genuine. It clogs the PC, makes it run slow, makes it sometimes unresponsive and makes me sometimes want to break it because it makes it run slow.


How can gyazo be a problem? i've been using it since FOREVER and it is a famous image sharing website. I can delete it but i don't see it as a problem .
Any other programs that seem malicious ?

Gyazo is not the problem. I assumed that when you posted examples you meant that those links were opening unexpectedly.

The question is who owns the machine and what is it used for? Why use a KMS activator on a machine used for games? I'm not expert on this but we need to know that your install is genuine.

PopcornTime is a piracy tool. It's likely a download contained a virus. Remove it and see if your problem goes away

i've only used that once, a very long time ago but yeah i removed it but the thing keeps appearing

maybe this is injected into google chrome because when the browser is Idle and i switch to it ( NOT ALWAYS ) first it opens up some ads in a new window which malwarebytes blocks . i'll test with internet explorer today and see if it does the same

KMS stands for Key Management Server, a key management server is used to manage Windows, (and other), licensing in major corporations where a licence is issued on a per user basis from a central location.
Systems are set to report their status every so-often to the Server which renews the licensing for software installed. The period is variable and set by the systems management tuned to the way the system is used, Local systems many be checked Hourly in public locations (where theft is possible), but every 90 days for laptops issued to mobile workers.

The KMS Activator is a piracy tool used to fake this system and run OS and other software, designed to use this system, without payment.

The problem with this type of software hack is that it is rarely without side effects - Backdoors, key loggers, and malicious Advert generators are often (if not always) part of the installation and so it's presence may be a contributory factor in your issues, It may even be the only cause.

No one is making any accusation that you are knowingly using these techniques to run your system without paying for it as it could be something the supplier did before sale, but we need to remove the Illegal Activator software to be able to proceed with fixing the issue you are experiencing

The PopcornTime situation where it is re-installing also suggests that you have a serious malware issue on your system - with this in mind I will move this thread to our security system so that the specialist in system security matters are more likely to see the thread and assist

you are saying my windows is fake? but i payed good money for this pc, even picked the parts myself. Didn't install them in the pc tho, i'm not that good.

I guess ill just take the pc to a shop and have it formatted or something since nothing i do seems to remove this adware.
Whats weird is i've had it for 8 or 9 months, if not more and the issue with adware or pups just started happening . . . since what i read is you suggesting it's because of this ksm thing that might be causing issues with activations
