Kevin,
I have made the changes in Edge as you suggested. There is not anything obviously wrong with the notebook. After two infections in a fortnight, I do feel a bit more nervous about using it. It has advantages over the iPad , connecting to a printer, usb. But the iPad is far quicker to use, and rumoured to be safer, which is why I am on the iPad now.

Hiya Arthur Penney,

Good to hear your PC is ok for you now, continue to finish up:

Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\USER\Desktop\FRST.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST to uninstall

That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...
