Go to your start button, then run, a window will pop up. On the line type in msconfig. When the box pops up go to the last tab on the right which should be the startup tab. When that tab opens you'll see a list of your active programs. Go down the list of programs and disable the ones that you don't want working during the time you're not at home. Re-start your computer and this should solve your problem.

Hi: I agree with the opinion that computers are supposed to be shutdown while we are not working on them... let's see: not only you will spend less energy as your operative system (in this case - Windows XP) will reload all the programs and information needed... and this is a true time save because your computer will run faster... But let's focus on the issue: - if that was provoked by you, don't do it again because each time you do something like that, Windows will accumulate errors... - if the problem is with the software (like you cannot have access to your Windows) you should use the "System Restore" Tool. It's a good tool for domestic computers and the common user If you need more detailed info just post again ;) Regards

You might want to try running the Apple Hardware Test(AHT), to check out the hardware. How to run the AHT depends on your computer model, you should be able to find it on apple.com/support If you find nothing then maybe running Repair Disk from the CD... Link to Directions: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302672 Hope this helps, I used to do technical support for apple... Post back if you still need help... Or you can check out Apple's discussion boards on their website. - Vince

Could you clarify this a little? What page would you like to set as your home page?
If you go to Tools -> Internet Options, you should be able to enter your home page there.
If you can't find the 'Tools' menu, hold down alt and press t

Most of the spyware programs on the Internet that will infect your computer log the websites you visit so that they can launch pop-ups and advertise products for you to buy.
If you have recurring pop-ups caused by spyware that appear whenever you connect to the Internet, you will need to completely remove the spyware causing the problem.
The most effective way to remove all spyware from your machine is to use at least two different antispyware programs while your computer is in safe mode so that the spyware cannot open itself.
Navigate your web browser to a website that offers a spyware removal utility such as "Spybot" or "Lavasoft Adaware".
Download and install the antispyware software.
Navigate to a second website and download a secondary antispyware utility.
Restart your computer and wait for the manufacturer's logo to appear on the screen.
Press the "F8" key repeatedly until a new menu pops up.
Scroll down through the list of options and highlight the entry labeled as "Safe Mode."
Open up the first spyware utility you installed earlier once the operating system has finished loading in safe mode.
Click on the antispyware utility's "Update Now" button at the left side of the window.
Wait for the program to finish downloading the latest spyware detection routines.
Disconnect your computer from its Internet connection either by unplugging its Ethernet cable or by powering off your wireless router.
Click on the "Search For Problems" button above the "Update Now" button.
Wait for the program to finish scanning your computer's hard drive for spyware, and then click on the "Remove Selected Problems" button.
Close down the antispyware program.
Reconnect your computer to its Internet connection.
Open the second antispyware utility you downloaded earlier.
Run the program's update feature and then disconnect your computer from the Internet again.
Run the program's scan, and then remove any problems it finds.
Reconnect your Internet connection and then restart your computer to finish removing the recurring spyware pop-ups from your PC.
Hope this helps
