Thanks. I did run malwaybytes already as soon as I uninstalled. I should be clear: this problem came before I installed uniblue registry booster.
For the record, here is what I did:
1. Someone on Microsoft Forums told me to come to this forum here: Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems
2. If you don't have an ad blocker in your browser, at the top of the page is a well disguised advertisement that says "Recommended Fix: Click here to fix Vista errors and optimize Vista Performance"
I clicked that and it brought me here: Registry — RegistryBooster — Top Rated Registry Cleaner
According to Norton, it's a safe website Norton Safe Web, from Symantec - report for liutilities.com
3. Thinking this was legit software, I downloaded it and installed and ran it and it found like 400 registry errors. And it said it would repaid 15 of them for free, which I had it do. Then I deleted it because it asked me to pay to repair the remaining 385 errors.
Should running malwarebytes be the end of it or should I do more virus scans?
This whole problem is kind of off topic anyways because I still can't adjust my power settings! Thanks.
Edit: I also did a system restore to a point I believe was before I installed the resgistry booster. The system keeps your documents in place, right? Thanks again!
