Ive got the avast and free malwarebytes but still these 2 keep popping up. They are not in programs or addons.

It's my son's computer and he has probably downloaded something whilst minecrafting.

I would let him live with it or sort it himself but I want him to revise and also I use his computer as it's got powerpoint on it and ours doesn't.

Anything else I can try?/ I don't mind paying for something as long as it works!

Have you tried returning to a restore point before this all started?

You might need the paid for malwarebytes to kill these.

If you want Powerpoint you could download Libreoffice from

Use the Impress program and save the file as .ppt

Check the extensions in the settings of the Internet browser. You might find them there & be able to remove them that way.

Housecall from Trend Micro may be worthwhile

Also AVG

It's been a long time since I bought AV software for home use, and it's definitely worth trying other free ones if at all possible.
