    Can I ask what AV you use, and also what Firewall?

    RKILL
    Performing miscellaneous checks:

    * Windows Defender Disabled

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender]
    "DisableAntiSpyware" = dword:00000001

    * Windows Firewall Disabled

    [HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile]
    "EnableFirewall" = dword:00000000
    ADWCleaner

    Not sure this will stop the issue you're seeing, but all that stuff needs to go. If you still have simplitec installed, remove it using the standard Windows method for uninstalling programs (Control Panel>Programs and Features).

    I would create a restore point, and then go ahead and select everything ADWCleaner found, and CLEAN it all off.

    It will be interesting if you can get a screenshot, or a photo with your phone/camera, so we can see exactly what you're seeing.

    Just so you know: RKILL is a temporary scan - it simply disables suspicious items, and everything it does is undone by a reboot - it doesn't clean anything. It is used to give temporary control of an infected computer back to the owner, so it can be cleaned. It also, (for our purposes here), identifies some key settings in the system.

    That looks to be the Edge Browser going to msn.com on startup. I would think you'd see some reference that that in your start up items.

    Nope, that's actually Internet Explorer.

    I did mention in the third post I'd removed Edge as I didn't want it, so perhaps it's something left over ?

    AV = AntiVirus. I just want to make sure you have a 3rd-party AV on your system, as RKILL reports that Defender is disabled. That is as it should be, if you're using something else.


    This picture you posted is Internet Explorer.
    Do you have Ccleaner on the machine? If so, I think you can disable it from there as well, if you can't find it in Startup/Task Manager.

    You could also change your home page on Internet Explorer if you don't care for that Bing one. If you'd like instructions on that, let me know.
