I've never had MalwareBytes cause issues.

In the light of your experience leave that on ice just for now and instead run ADWCleaner which removes unwanted toolbars (you have plenty). You download and save the file, then double click the saved file to run the program - no install as such. Get it here (it's very small):

(use download button at top right).
Run the Scan then paste the Report (log) on here. We can have a look and hopefully run the Clean afterwards.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

That's often caused by malware so give your computer a full system scan with reliable antivirus & antispyware tools.

At the very least run MalwareBytes on it:

I did run malware bytes a couple of days ago. Deleted everything they said. It took out all of my information plus my connection to att, so couldn't get on the internet. I ran restore and with help. was able to get reconnected. I ran malware bytes again and not wanting to do the same thing again, I am going to post the log here. I did not remove any of it. I need to know what I can remove and be safe. I can post the log from the one that removed information and connection if needed.

Thank you for your reply. I deleted many add on's and that did help. I do have someone working with me now deleting the toolbars and many other things. I still have many issues, but it is better. I will report again after several days of monitoring.

Just a follow up on my situation. I unsubscribed from many many safelists which stopped emails from coming in. This brought bandwidth down and the problem is solved. Thank you so much for the help you gave me.

I have a new problem. When I boot my computer, it is making a very loud noise. I can boot it in safe mode and it does not make any noise. I did open it and blow it out, but I used a compressor to do it. Did I mess something up or is it something else? It was making the noise before I cleaned out the dust. That is why I cleaned it. It sounds like a loud horn.

Thank you in advance for you are very helpful and I do appreciate it.

Try to locate where the sound is coming from. There are several possibilities such as fan bearings or hard disk drive.
