Bearing in mind that some of the more reliable and safe to use malware removal utils "may" not yet be fully compatible with win-10... These are the usual recommended here. All safe and free...


Junkware RemovalTool (JRT) - They appreciate a wee small donation if you feel so inclined; but it is otherwise free.



JRT installs to the desktop from where you run it. It will open into dos style window; follow the instructions therein. It will reboot the system as part of its process.

When you install "anything" even the above - downloaded from the web... use the manual/custom option . do NOT use the automatic option - the standard default. Using custom/manual means you can careful note and uncheck all those little boxes (so helpfully pre-checked for your convenience) which will otherwise allow all manner of unwanted "stuff" to go in as well. Some it is a real PAI to eradicate... Includes browser changes; assorted warnings - that you have this or that wrong; offers of free scans - which you don''t need; drivers updates... The list can be endless...; so best to avoid at all times...
