Likely came in with some of those games you/she has on there like "Free Ride Games" and "ArcadeSafari"...

Have you looked in Control Panel > Uninstall Programs to see if it's listed there? If so try and remove it, if not you can try Revo Uninstaller ---> http://www.revouninstaller.com/start_freeware_download.html < install and right click desktop icon "Run as Administrator"", locate PC HealthBoost and highlight, select Uninstall.


Also want you to download and run Malwarebytes. > Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop. Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location and post the results in your next post...


Let us know how you make out...

Flush out those temporary internet files and other junk that accumulates over time and defrag the hard drive from time to time.


I prefer to use Steven Gould's Clean Up utility: http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=72


Others like and use ccleaner: http://www.downloadinfo.co/review/ccleaner/?kw=download+now&subid=DICCUS&cust=ccleaner&type=ccleaner&sl=1&gclid=CJPy2MeambkCFcyY4Aod8DEABQ&utm_campaign=DICCUS&fwd=1&rnd=dd48f31761c9f0aaa691b41255112d1c545b45fe&ts=1377454731


Either works a treat. :tup:


Keep running a Pit test from time to time, as you did in your initial post, and it'll keep you informed on how the rig is behaving.
