Can someone please help me, I bought this refurbished laptop recently but I keep getting a message pop up saying I have critical errors and I should go to Registrycleaner, that it is free, but when I go there they scan but don't get rid of the pop up but ask me to pay for membership for a proper cleanup!!! Anyone else have this problem?

Please paste the report in your next reply. DO NOT RUN OPTION 2 YET!!!
