Okay, before I proceed with those steps, I have some questions! First, do I really need to uninstal chrome? I'm prefeering firefox tbh lol. Also, the pc is already fixed it seems, with no problems. It runs perfectly smooth and better than ever :) Thanks! Should I still run those scans?

Hi

Yes please run the scans in case there is anything still to address.

If you don't want to install Chrome that's up to you and your choice, you don't need to. :)

Okay, I encountered a problem when running the emergency kit. it says one of the items that needed to go to the quarantine can't get moved because it's too risky. I'll attach a screenshot. Ask me if you need me to translate something elseemergenkit.png

Hi, I tried to move the rest to the quarantine and it stops halfway through, and doesn't send them to the quarantine. I click the button to move and then the dialog dissapears, and if I click the move button it goes away again.
