Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Looking at those two items, they are malware programs; those programs usually display ads and sponsored website links on your computer and/or sell you things.

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10?

Can we do a remote support session, so I can remove all these malware for you directly on your computer together with you?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

No. I know these two malware or adware programs; they cannot take over your computer. Also, some websites do not describe everything correctly. Usually these adware / malware programs got installed on your computer because the user click on bad links or click on ads in email or or when searching for things on the internet.
