Windows start up issues and malware bytes will not install

Recommended Posts

I have a computer only purchased a few months ago to replace an old computer that had been acting up...running beyond slow, would not start up correctly on a consistent basis, etc.  So I purchased a new one and transferred all my files to it.  Now this new computer is doing the same thing.  The monitors are not detected or it will not complete start up.  Programs I've removed are being re-installed.  I've tried system restore but it will not show me any restore points.  I used malewrebytes on the old system and it would seem to help for a few days and then back to the same issue.  I think whatever was on my old computer I somehow transferred right onto to new one.  Is there any advice anyone can give me on how to proceed? 


I'm running Windows 10 Home version/  I'm now also having trouble posting this message.  Hopefully it gets through


I'd appreciate any help.
