PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM/Stealth Adware


Hi Saleem. Hope you've been doing well. I recently tried to almost completely download a free software called camtasio studio in one of those free shareware websites. Now I've noticed it changes my homepage when I first log online using google chrome. I've changed it back but it overrides the command. And there's also this small window that sometimes appears asking me to back up my pc to the cloud. It's some kind of adware that's still in my hard-drive. I've tried to erase all of the recent download but something is still inside of here. Do you know how I can get things back the way they were? Enjoy your weekend.

Dear Sterling

Firstly you might want to install CCleaner and run the same to check for any potential threats under startup.  Also install Adaware and scan your computer for any applications that are latching on to your browser.

Hope this helps.
