    Hi Eileen,
    Believe me, no one here is going to give up on you at all. You certainly do not need a new computer.

    Have you followed the instructions in post #15 ?

    Please read thru it carefully and do each step in the order they are posted.
    If you have any questions, please ask them.

    Malwarebytes should be run using the Custom Scan option, checking the box to include rootkits, and selecting all drives ever attached to the system at any time.
    I clicked 100 boxes....

    Did that

    I see you have Avast on it. I'm fairly confident that Avast would prevent a RAT from installing, unless you were duped into installing it by a malicious site. I had to download it and ran it showed nothing wrong

    Ran ESET

    Malwarebytes and ESET will take quite some time to run; ADWCleaner is quick, and you might run that first. If it finds anything, you should post the logs here for review. They will be found in the root of your C drive.

    Eset found 2 threats

    The address of any site that you visit which exhibits this strange behaviour should be scanned at virustotal.com, and blocked if found to be necessary.

    Reset Chrome to remove all extensions. Chrome is not a very safe browser, and I don't use it except when necessary. Done

    I ran Ccleaner

    Northing is coming up......

    Does the "let camera use apps" privacy setting have anything to do with this?

    What do you mean by ""Nothing is coming up"" ?

    Are you saying the problem is gone now ?

    If you do, if that's the advice also given by others here, you need to clear it before you return it. By that, I mean erase everything on it, securely. I'm not suggesting that is the cure, just a warning/caution about returns of PCs. Don't leave any personal information on it.

    Hi.
    The two toolbars are nothing to worry about.
    Did you run ADWCleaner and may I see those logs please?
    example:
    in the C:\AdwCleaner\ folder, you'll find
    AdwCleaner[S1].txt and AdwCleaner[C1].txt

    If you run it more than once, the numbers will change: [S2] and [C2].

    Before returning it, I would consider this: If your data is all backed up to a safe place, you can do a complete recovery to the system, to return it to the way it was when you first bought it. (You'd want to do this anyway, before you return it.)

    @purplelover

    Eileen, I peeked at your ADWcleaner logs.

    AOL is installing Viewpoint , along with AIM Instant Messenger on your machine, as part of it's "package". According to this article, even if you delete it, AOL will put it right back if it's missing as soon as you log onto AOL the next time. You might want to seriously consider getting rid of AOL and using something different. There looks like a way to avoid the re-installation if you delete Viewpoint, etc. , but AOL anything is simply not needed. This is what I found on the Viewpoint and the results of your ADWcleaner.

    do you think Viewpoint is taking the screen shots on my computer??? If I deleted it would the screen shots go away?????

    I need a browser and mail program. Aol is easy to use but I would be willing to switch. I have chrome.
