Recent work on Win 7/8 machines IHave found on startup a constant barrage of invites to sign g up for repair/speedup utilities.
Installing Malawarebytes,Adbocker,etc., seems to have no affect.
Using Revo uninstaller,will get rid,but only for that session,next boot up they are back
Even taking the machine offline seems to make no difference.
Are the see items incorporated into the system I wonder?
If so how to get rid for good.
It can take 15/20 minutes sometime to get the machine into a use able state.
Try the free Adwarecleaner free from Bleepingcomputer. Should get rid.
If you pay attention when you are setting up the download, there are a raft of tick boxes and you can untick them.
However, you'll very likely miss them if you rush
Watch which sites to download from. I have found Filehippo good with no sneaky add ons, but CNet bad, for example.
Tick boxes I amaware and tick assiduasly and site I do choose with care.
But you both seem to have missed the point
These items come uninvited, on line and off.
They seen to be either 'built in' to the O/S or hiding in some dark corner from first install or start.
Possibly they are the 'extra programs/trials' you get with a big name OEM pre-installed, that would explain why they are there from new first startup.
This idea seems the most plausible.
One machine I dealt with came with a Vista to 7 upgrade disc, was 'clean' from 'go'
They are, of course, in all your Restore Points. So you will need to clear the Cache
