How DarkMarket is taken down by FBI?

A simple introduction to Dark Market.

An article on Technet help solve my trouble. To stop FortiClient from starting automatically, try the following:

Switch Startup type to Manual.Restart your computer. FortiClient should not be running automatically the next time round. Hope it helps.
