Thankyou so much for the info u provided, I’ve downloaded a cracked gta 5 ‘setup’ file (which I shouldn’t have) and I thought I dodged installing all the malware, about a minute after 6 different program’s were installed and pop-ups were everywhere, I uninstalled most program’s but system healer keeps coming back. Hopefully trying your instructions everything should be ok. Once again thx.
