Tip & How-To about Malware Remover Computers & Internet

Removing unwanted programs/malware

Many computer problems can be fixed by the user simply by doing a web search with search terms related to the specific issue.

Sometimes you may have an unwanted program that downloaded along with something else you actually intended to install and trying to remove it via "add/remove programs" in Control Panel doesn't help.

Go to your preferred search engine (I prefer Bing) and type in "how do I remove" followed by the program/malware you want to get rid of.

Always be as specific as possible with the search terms you use so that you will be more likely to get the best results.

If at all possible, avoid downloading anything that says it will remove the issue as often these will be adware/malware as well. Stick to known programs for removal of Malware such as MalwareBytes Free Anti Malware Internet Security Software and
Ad Aware Free Antivirus and Antispyware by Lavasoft Protection from Virus...

What is the main purpose of using keyword in SEO?

Using keywords in SEO has helped me to find out what words are exactly being used for search by the clients. To know the client's way or approach of search is what will get them to your website. if you want more people to get into your business or website, you should be able to drive them to your website, without their knowledge. And that is what SEO services aim at doing as well. They will help you to find those keywords, matching your niche, which is highly searched and ranks higher. So you can include these words in your website content so that when people search for those specific words, your website will be ranking higher or better int he search engine results as well. I am a regular user of the mason soiza SEO services, and they help me a lot to rank better and get more traffic to my website. I Will recommend the same to you.

Searching for a program by typing it in the start menu no longer brings up the program.

It is quite possible that while you were 'mucking' around, you may have changed some setting that should have remained unchanged.

Rather than trying to figure out & undo everything you've done, I'd recommend restoring your computer to a previous point in time (using System Restore) to before it was 'broken'.

To get into System Restore:
1) go into the Win 7 Control Panel,
2) click System,
3) click System Protection,
4) click System Protection tab,
5) click System Restore.
6) select an appropriate Restore Point.

When I try to connect to Yahoo mail, I get the message, Internet explorer cannot display the webpage


If you receive the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" there are several things you can try to resolve the issue. We first need to decide if the problem is related to your network connectivity, the website, or a problem with your browser. This is why we often recommend users have at least two web browsers on their computer. If you use Internet Explorer and something happens to it, you may not ever be able to get online without reinstalling Windows or doing a system restore. You should also have a secondary user account on the machine just in case, as this gives you the added benefit of having different settings and rights, would could contribute to someone losing their access due to malicious code or accidentally deleting a file they should not have. You also need to make sure the problem is not specific to that website. It's possible the site simply might be temporarily down.
Suggestions to Fix Internet Explorer Cannot Display the Webpage Error Reboot the computer - It's a little known fact that 99 percent of all strange computer errors can be fixed simply be rebooting the computer. If that doesn't work, shut the PC completely down for a while then power up to see if the problem still exists. We won't go into why this works, but it might, so give it a try.
Power Cycle the Network - Shut down the computer, unplug the router and unplug the modem. Power them back on in the reverse order. This will help clear up any IP and DNS problems you might be experiencing.
Check your IP address- Go to Start > Run and type cmd and hit OK. At the prompt, type ipconfig /all and make sure you are getting an IP address local to your network, such as 192.168.x.x and NOT 169.254.x.x. The latter IP address beginning in 169 is a made up IP address Windows uses when it cannot get one from the DHCP server, which is usually your router or Internet Service Provider.
Try A Different Web Browser- If you have a second web browser, such as Firefox, give that a try. If you can connect with the other browser, try resetting your Internet Explorer by opening the browser and going to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab>Restore.
You can also try deleting your temp files and refreshing the browser window by hitting the F5 key. But this type of problem is often network related and can be fixed by confirming all connections and IP addresses are correct.

Have a nice day
