Wow...getting out of hand. I try to D/L MalWare to get rid of possible virus or malware causing problem when searching...I'm stopped by "ClickPotato"(?) which has nothing to do with MalWare...now I should try D/L superantispyware to stop the ClickPotato adware, which is stopping the D/L of the MalWare, then update someone's database. Why superantispyware? I thought this MalWareBytes was "the thing"?
Are things always this complicated for a basic user? Thought it was gonna be a relatively simple issue when I made the first post, now I'm getting confused enough to just disregard it, don't want to pick brains for 50 or 100 posts and make a mountain out of what I thought was a molehill. Maybe my comp is just a "lemon", and has "weird" problems.
So, the point where I am at right now, is end of previous post, I did the restart, and that's it, the starting over point I guess. Now, I am not sure if I should D/L MalW (try), then update it first by D/Ling the 5 MalW "versions" before I "run" MalW (bubbatie1 = "...if ya download the malwarebytes for the first time it is a must you update it first b4 you run it..."). Also - bubbatie1 says "...open malwarebyes, look for "updates" then check for updates...". Look and check? You must mean look for any updates, and if there are any, D/L them. Then you say reboot in safe mode. Then "run/install" MalW? I'm about ready to roll over and play dead.
