    Mention that to him when he gets back from the store. MBAM is a <10 min process.

    Me, too. That's why I asked if he remembered the steps.

    He may have done multiple restores, no way of knowing, but that is a very long time, even for a real reset.

    He said he ran a scan of MBAM again and it came back clean this time.
    It still has to scan again with the root kit enabled.

    Let us not forget all of what he is doing is new to him and may be confused as to what he did
    and how to explain it to us.

    I think he need's to learn how to take screen shot's and show what he is doing.

    Peter, you are doing great so far with everything. I am not trying criticizing you at all in a bad way.
    You are learning and its what counts.

    What I'm seeing sounds more like a restore of an earlier system image, not a reset. What do you think?
    I think it's a reset. I've done resets on W8 machines, and they remove all installed programs but leave your data. W10 should be the same. The fact that it took so dang long, sounds like a reset to me.

    Correct. As I said, Mindspark is a PITA and may show up in a rootkit scan.

    But guys - the OP is not following my method - he's jumped to ESET and skipped the MBAM+Rootkit, the Ccleaner reg clean, etc. Of course, if it is a reset, then all we have to worry about now is *maybe* browser junk.

    You're right Computiac, we need screenshot, and logs; an installed programs list from Ccleaner, snips of the Windows Startup entries in Ccleaner, the browser tabs in Ccleaner, etc.
