    I have security essentials at home. It found it and removed it before it latched onto my system. I have been very happy with that free one. I have used them all at some point.

    1. on a clean computer, download malwarebytes (above) to a flash drive
    2. restart the infected computer in safe mode (keep hitting F8 as it restarts to choose a startup mode)
    3. plug in flash drive and run malwarebytes.

    I keep getting popups for hsloader.com with a bunch of other computer talk after it.
    I've been running scan after scan with both webroot and malwarebytes which keep finding things, but this stuff keeps popping up.
    What else can I do, also my computer is now running extremely slow.
    HELP!!!
