Thanks for coming to my page. I built my PC 3 weeks ago, and I am using Windows 10. I don't know how I got it, but recently I have been getting a lot of pop-up ads. I did a little research and I think its called the "Trojan Virus". I couldn't find any useful tutorials or ways to stop it. Just typing this paragraph so far, I have had 6-wait-7 pop-ups. My PC has become extremely slow. All the ads say "provided by cinema p.1.8. On YouTube, there is a light-switch near the search box. Is this part of the virus? If anyone knows how to stop this problem PLEASE HELP!! Ask questions down below. thanks -Nacho

Hi, I to remove the Torjan virus from your machine, check the below link. Also in future to avoid this don’t any unwanted websites or unsecured websites.

Sounds like you installed a malware infected version of the Windows 10 Demo.

You should get a copy of windows 7 or 8.1 and use that, windows 10 is not ready for use yet.

It wasn't immediately though, it started about 2 weeks in.

It doesnt have to be Immediate. A hacker can code the program in such a way that he connects to your PC via a backdoor and once he is there he installs a bunch of nefarious programs in the background.

Ok, here's how I deal with malware:

  1. Download Malwarebytes and run a Full Scan. More often than not it will find something. Once it's done quarantine the problems and reboot. If this doesn't solve the problem:

  2. Download the BitDefender and Malwarebytes rescue disks, these are some of the best around. Burn them to 2 individual disks and boot to them. Do a scan and see if it finds anything. Repeat with the second disk. If this doesn't fix it:

  3. Reinstall Windows. Literally a guaranteed fix.

Hope it helped!

Ok thanks! The only problem is, I don't have a case with a disk drive, but my friend has a portable one I can use. Thanks for the help!

No problem. Just remember you can almost-always run the program Malwarebytes, which usually picks up adware from my experience.

Ok! Sweet! I will message a thank you (if I remember) when it's complete! Also, if you don't mind me asking a favour, is this a legit way to get photoshop? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BcS6LR5jhAg Most people on the website and in the comments say it worked for them. I just want to clarify with a professional. Thx :)

I'm no professional but I wouldn't trust it. Anyone can setup fake accounts and post stuff like that. I highly recommend GIMP, it's almost just as good, is open-source and FREE. I use it all the time.

Oh, I love gimp! That's what I'm using currently, it's just, everyone told me photoshop was way better.
