  1. Somtell his name

    Go to programs and click on super optimiser for some reason they included a uninstaller with that malware so it might do the job for you after doing this download adwcleaner from bleepingcomputer if there is anything suspicious left

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately, my 13 year old son is now unable to get past the initial Super Optimiser screen on the PC he bought for Xmas (even your step 1 ‘F8’ solution doesn’t work). Is there any other way we can try to address the problem, as this horrendous software has rendered his PC completely useless!

    • when you start up the pc do
      Control + alt + delete and go to task manager to end the window then do what this page says up top
