I just want to say first off I have already followed the steps in removing this program.
I have downloaded and installed 'Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware software, I have performed both the quick scan and the full scan and I have removed all viruses.
My laptop is working fine again now except for one problem, once I have turned my computer on, I then logon, it then takes longer than usual to login and after about a minute maybe longer the 'ThinkPoint' home screen comes up and stops me from doing anything but.
Now I know ho to get around this to get to my desktop and once I do everything works as normal.
Not only is this a massive inconvenience everytime I logon it also worries me that the scans I am performing aren't picking this up.
How do I remove this please?
Thank You for your help.
I look forward to your reply
