Are you looking for your posts? If you go to your user profile, mixedup58 and click on the Show posts menu on the left side you will be taken to this page, mixedup58 That shows all three posts you have made (I know both links look the same, but they are different).

Hi mixedup58,
I'm just popping in to let you know that we cannot handle malware issues via our private messaging system. Therefore, I am responding to your questions here.

1. Malwarebytes is not a virus. It is aggressive in reporting PUPS (Potentially Unwanted Programs). You will need to review the names of those programs to know if you want them or not. There is more information here: https://malwarebytes.zendesk.com/entries/23482988-What-are-the-PUP-detections-are-they-threats-and-should-they-be-deleted-
If you play online games (including Facebook games and applications) Malwarebytes, may find PUPS on your computer. That is because of the possiblity that they can download advertising, spyware, and other unwanted pests.

2. Malwarebytes does not take the place of an anti-virus. It works along with it. Here is an interesting article that was just published: http://lifehacker.com/the-difference-between-antivirus-and-anti-malware-and-1176942277

3. Free anti-virus programs that I  have used in the past on various computers are AVG and Avast!. When Microsoft Security Essentials was released, I decided to try that. I have been using Microsoft Security Essentials on two computers for the last few years. I am very happy with it.  MSE is easy to use. I think you will like it.

4. If you would like someone to help you remove SpyHunter, you will need to post DDS logs so the staff can see which files are involved. Instructions are here: [NEW Instructions!] What Do I Do First?
