i didnt see your last post, ignore my last post for now. Tracking cookies are harmless but if it found malware delete those. Do what the program says. After its done and you have restarted boot into safe mode and run malwarebytes there 2nd time. After that run both scans in normal windows 2nd time.

yeah sure but if you find any malware you need to do multiple scans with different programs, like i said you can run malwarebytes in safe mode too. If you have windows 7 then just spam F8 right after booting up before you get into operating system, you should get option to choose safe mode or safe mode with networking. Fire that up and run malwarebytes. if you dont have win7 then google how to get to safe mode

Make sure your power setting is set to high performance, gtx 960m is a mediocre gpu at best. Can you list what settings you have on Nvidia control panel? You are going to have to scale back the settings to play the game. Try using msi afterburner to overclock the gpu. But watch the temps, just keep the cooling fan/s spun up to max.

do as many scans until there is no malware left. Then try play games again, you can try 1080p but all other settings low. I have a mate who has msi gaming laptop with 960m and it was hitting well over 100fps constant with everything low 1080p

Although he had better cpu, need to see if that is the issue. shknawe is right about it(960m) being mediocre gpu but on low settings it should still run really good
