Default need info about sweetpacks

dell laptop, windows 7. mse, hitman pro, mbam and (sandboxie and wot, NOW, NOT THEN)

a friend has trouble with homepage switching and additional increasing anomalies, he described it to me as this "seems like i have a different problem every day or week."

i changed his homepage back properly then checked in his programs, i located something that
said...............microsoft resdistributable 4.6 by sweetpacks by pirion with a date of 05-13-2013. i did not remove it, but after locating it, i restarted computer and found my change in homepage had been inefective. i stopped at this point.

i cant find any info that tells me clearly if it should be removed or not, but i did read that "one" symptom of sweetpacks is changing homepage.

it should be said that i disabled an add on from sweetpacks, but i dont know what if anything to do next.

can someone provide a reputable link or provide me some info? thank you much
