    Can someone tell me how to get rid of this popup error I get when booting up? I've googled solutions, but not sure which one to trust.

    I don't know anything about it myself but when I googled it I found a fix on a blog from the Washington Post. I would think that would be fairly reputable.

    I use SpySweeper from Webroot and haven't had any problems with adware, popups, etc. since installing it.

    I hope the fix works!

    I've had pretty good luck having folks download Microsoft Defender and using that. It's free and well worth a shot; I've found that it detects most of everything thrown at it these days...

    And yes, I know it's ironic that "Mr. Linux" is recommending Microsoft software... I'm not here to convert anyone, just trying to get you back to a usable system :)
