Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
I wish to help a friend permanently remove istart123 from his computer which is running Windows 8. He "temporarily" got rid of it by carrying out a recovery from a date before he had the problem. Unfortunately, istart123 has come back in addition to the popups. He has to close out of each popup before doing anything else on the computer.
After reviewing his situation, I am under the strong impression that his computer is infected with malware. However, I could be wrong and stand to be corrected on this assumption. At any rate, if someone could provide some technical guidance geared toward resolving this issue, it will be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I will look forward to hearing from everybody.
