Computer running slow stuff keeps popping up

Your pc is infected. Go to -  - (antivirus) and -  - (antispyware) and Download (as in Save, not Run) the installers. Disconnect your pc from the internet (unplug the lan cable, shutdown the wireless or unplug the modem), close all your present (and clearly useless) security software and uninstall them,  launch the installers that you downloaded (Avast first - during install you will be offered the option to perform a boot scan - take it) and follow the instructions. Once the installs are over connect your pc to the internet and reboot once more. You will have to manually update Spybot (the link is on its main windows) before launching a full scan..

How do I install my Logitech webcam? My niece uses Yahoo Messenger, but when I tried to install it, my home page chanaged to Yahoo and numerous popups appear daily.


Let me explain the procedure on how to install the Webcam.

Procedure is same for all Brand Webcams.

First disconnect the Webcam from the Computer. Insert the Webcam driver disks and follow onscreen steps to complete the installtion.

In between the installtion, it will ask you to connect the Webcam. There you have to connect the Webcam, then small installtion will run and Cam will be ready to use.

If it won't ask you to connect the Webcam, then after completing the installtion you can connect the cam.

Comming to the Home page and POPups issue.

While installing the Webcam driver by following the onscreen steps, somewhere there will be checks for "Set Yahoo as home page" or "Install yahoo or Google tool bar etc" you have to uncheck all those kind of things while installing the driver software.

Anyhow, I will also provide steps on how to change the Internet explorer home page and Block POPups.

Here are the steps to change the Home page of Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Under Homepage, Enter the Website you want to set as default and press Enter (Eg:

4. Click Apply--ok

To block the POPUPs:

1. Open Internete explorer.

2. Click on Tools Menu--Internet Options.

3. Click on Privacy Tab

4. Check box for BLOCK POPUPS

5. Click Apply--Ok.

Hope that helps you!!

I get popups regeristry

Most popups saying you have a critical problem with the registry are related to malware being present on the system. These popups also usually recommend you buy a product to fix the registry. Do not buy the product they offer.

The malware that is infecting this system can be identified and removed with Geek Squad's advanced computer diagnostic and repair service over the internet. Just go to and click the Geek 911 Emergency help now and then select the Click to chat button.

This keeps popping up on my computor screen "cannot find Macromedia Flash. I don't know what this is and I do not want it. Thank you . Please take this off if you can.

Flash is a program that most sites have and need to run properly when browsing the is a free download and does not harm the compuer and does not take up that much space all things considered its worth the download.
it will not do anything to your computer, it will just allow what ever that popup is concerned about to run.
