How do you stop pop ups?

If its in browser, Install Adblock or some extensions smiliar to that which will block all the unwanted pop ups. If you mean the pop ups while starting any program, then you should have to set the settings to "never notify" in User Accounts Control Settings in Control Panel.

I never had password for parental control do not want one

Now that the kids have left for college, the need for parental controls on the family computer is no longer necessary. If you're stumped as to how to remove the web-blocking software, don't worry. It's an easy process no matter if you use a Windows- or Mac-based operating system.

To Remove Parental Control Software from Windows XP b> Click "Start" and then open up the "Control Panel". Click on "Add or Remove Programs". Wait for the program list to populate. Scroll through the list and identify the monitoring web software such as NetNanny, WebWatcher or similar. Click on the web monitoring software. To the right of the highlighted software is a button that says "Change/Remove", or two buttons, one "Change" the other "Remove". Click the appropriate button that will remove the web blocking software. If you get a pop up asking if you wish to continue, click "Yes". The Windows Add/Remove utility will proceed automatically from this point on. b> To Remove Parental Control Software from Vista or Windows 7 b> Click "Start", then open up the "Control Panel". A new window will open up, select "Programs and Features". The heading will now read "Uninstall or Change a Program". Scroll through the list until you find the web blocking software you wish to remove. Select program. The action "Uninstall" will appear next to the word "Organize" in the bar above the program list. Select "Uninstall". Click Yes when the message box pops up asking if you're sure you want to uninstall the parental controls program. The uninstall utility will take over from there. b> To Remove Parental Controls on a Mac b> Open the "System Preferences" folder. Select "Accounts" under the "Systems" header at the bottom of your screen. Select the user account name from which you wish to remove parental controls from the left hand column. Uncheck "Enable Parental Controls".

Pop went on my keyboard by accident and most of the keys do not work. How do you fix it.

You'll need to replace the keyboard. First figure out how to remove it. Google or search the manufactures web site. One's I worked on have screws through the bottom labeled "K". Pay attention to the screw lengths and make sure the same ones go back in the same screws. The keybd itself just sets inside a little lip once you get the screws all out. Remove it and see if the pop went on to other areas of the laptop. If it did then I don't think you'll be able to repair it, But if it only on the key bd, I'd search ebay for another board. The ribbon cable just pushes on and off to remove it completely.

The labtop was found and i cant get into without

You can try to enter setup, most users either forget or don't bother to setup a password to enter it, and either add youself as administrator. With admin rights you'll be able to change/reset passwords, add or remove users and perform other system related functions. To enter setup startup the computer and start tapping the escape key before windows is completely installed. If your unsure of the various options in the setup do a web search for setup options.

You have left over pieces of a spyware and/or adware program. Here is how to go about removing them:

1) Goto 'Control Panel' then to 'Add/Remove Programs'
2) Locate 'My Web Search' Select 'Change/Remove' and uninstall it.
3) Also look around for other programs associated 'FunWebProducts' like:
My Web Search
My Speedbar
Search Assistant - My Way
4) Once you have cleared the out of your program's list, proceed to your C drive.
5) Goto Program Files
6) Locate and delete the following folders;
7) Finally Goto Start>Run
8) Type 'msconfig' and press OK.
9) Once the msconfig window pops up select the Tab labeled "Startup"
10) Sift through the startup items look for anything pertaining to either FunWebProducts and/or My Web Search
11) Once found uncheck all of them(FWP/MWS items).

This should fix your start up issues. I would also advise you to Get Spybot-Search&Destroy From here. This will keep you from getting nasty programs like this again.

Hope that helps. If you have any questions lemme know.
