Reboot the computer and try running it once more.

Will Malwarebytes run ?

Or adwcleaner ?

Try those again too.

Ok, we ran the program one more time.  The detect PUP window did not come up, as before.  However, we clicked on “scan settings” and there was a detect pups check box already checked.  We ran the scan and the report is attached, below……….

we tried to run malawarebytes and adwcleaner.  They both were unsuccessfully, again………

Thank You

Hello,

I wonder if adwCleaner would run in safemode. Getting to safemode is easy;

To start Windows 7 in Safe Mode;

Restart the computer
Then
Immediately after the computer is restarted ,keep taping the F8 key in 1 second intervals. After your computer displays hardware information and runs a memory test, the Advanced Boot Options menu will appear. It's a black screen with white letters on it, from the list select safemode and then press enter on the keyboard. The computer will boot into safemode, your display may look funny that's normal.

See if AdwCleaner will run, might as well try Malwarebytes too.

Let me know the errors on both programs.

First of all my apologies for taking a while in responding to your instructions.  We followed them but both programs did not work in safe mode, either.  Both errors messages are posted below……..

Thank You

Ok, we d/loaded the “tweaking windows repair” to the desktop, as instructed.  We then extract it to the desktop and everything seemed to be  running fine until the end.  Affter the extraction was over an error message popped up (posted below) and there was no “tweaking windows repair” folder on the desktop.  We then extracted it to c:\ drive and all the folders and sub-folders were there in the file directory.  I found the “repair windows” file and tried to run it, as instructed.  However, I got the same error message, as on the desktop.
 

thank you
