I have been having trouble with my laptop for a few days. Programs not opening receiving messages on start up SEARCH CONDUIT STOPPED WORKING PREMIER OPTON HAS STOPPED WORKING. Also Programme has stopped working

Now I have received PREMIER OPTION thank you for joining I have no idea what this is about.

In Control Panel Programs & Features I notice one or two programmes I do not know about one SEARCH PROTECT can this be deleted?

It takes ages to open a programme. My Virus checker is Kaspersky I have ran a virus check & defragged my Hard Drive

It took a long time to open PC Advisor page

See this. I would run the free trial of HitmanPro as JocK1e suggests and also run the good old Spybot S&D, again the free version, click here, remember to manually update before running a full scan. You need to get rid of Conduit.

Remove all programs you don't recognize in programs and features prior to running scans. 1]: [click here 2]: [click here

Malware has it running better, the thing now. I get on start up is the following C:\user\Bob\appdata\local\temp\CT 1320680 pluginVerfier.dll.

I’ve tried to download Spybot but all I get is a PC Clean up

Spybot S&D here">http://">here. Once all removed then run Latest version of Ccleaner.
