    I was thinking about this a bit more last night - that Dragons Den thing you posted a few days ago... did you get that in an email? If so, it might have come with some free malware. I am inclined to suggest you start with Malwarebytes, and then AdwCleaner as Ricky suggests, and then move on to the other tools.

    Make sure you restart the computer in between running each program too - and keep it on the mains unless it seizes up again.

        The Bitcoin thing had a different title on the thumbnail . I don't remember what I was looking at when I came across it. I have done what I had to do with my computer so I've put it away for now. Another day when I have nothing else to do, I will look at it again. I'm having to save money now so all non essentials will have to wait.
