"Frechheit", hat sich selbständig versucht in das System einzunisten, ein abbrechen war nur durch GEWALT möglich, da ein ABBRUCH der installation nicht geduldet wird. Antivirenprogramm Stuft dies als sehr gefählirch ein.Ein eigenständiges Leben zeichnet diese Software absolut negativ aus. Weiter ist das Problem, das durch den Abbruch des Setup noch nicht Schluß ist, beim nächsten Start geht die gleiche Prozedur von vorne los. Also raus mit Schrott, was eigenständig arbeitet! Der Commander ist immer noch der Anwender !!!

Best practices for resolving wajam issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: Security Task Manager examines the active wajam process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known anti-malware tool tells you if the wajam.dll on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
