Ok so here's the breakdown...

  • I have never installed Wajam
  • I never wanted Wajam
  • I'm not sure what keeps installing it, my guess so far is there is a background process running that I don't know about that keeps installing Wajam
  • One clue might be is that sometimes out of the blue a command prompt window will popup and then dissapear almost instantly. I can't remember the title of the window. Also whenever Wajam is installed it opens a webpage that has to do with "FastandFreeDownloads"

Any ideas... I have had to go to Conrol Panel and uninstall Wajam so many times. It's really starting to become frustrating.

Download the free version of malwarebytes anti-malware (https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/) and set that upon it, usually does the trick.

Ok so I ended up doing a full scan with MalwareBytes and it removed 216 threats! I overlooked them and saw a lot from Wajam, conduit, trojan, basically everything that likes to be a bug crawling through your computer. I believe the problem is fixed. So thanks a lot to you guys. It's been really bugging me ;) (please excuse my puns)

Another Question Solved by me remember stay safe till then RobertHDD out remember conduit is annoying and hard to fix and get rid of but with my advice its gonna be easy I hope you have a wonderful time!
