Is the file wmipruse.exe a virus or something that can be used to disrupt my laptop?

To avoid stopping all the services when a provider fails, providers are loaded into a separate host process named Wmiprvse.exe. Multiple instances of Wmiprvse.exe can run at the same time under different accounts: LocalSystem, NetworkService or LocalService. The WMI core WinMgmt.exe is loaded into the shared Local Service host named Svchost.exe.
Note: wmiprvsw.exe is the Sasser worm!
Note: The wmiprvse.exe file is located in the folder C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem. In other cases, wmiprvse.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!

Get rid of one 8

1 Go to tools on the top right, then settings.
2 Go to "Appearance" and you'll see the home button. Make sure this is clicked. To the right of this click "change" and set what home page you want.
3 Now to get rid of the "one 8". Go to your google icon in "start > all programs and left click Google Chrome. This brings up the Google Chrome icon.
4 Right click the icon and then left click "properties".
5 Click on "shortcut". Below that you'll see "target". The target shold end with the words ........... \chrome.exe"
6 Delete everything after this as that's where the "one 8 is probably lurking.

Any time you get a different home page or start page, this is where you'll usually find the offending program.

ps ... in your settings, check that the "one 8" isn't in your list of search engines. If it is, delete it. Any problems, get back to me.

Weebly, home page has disappeared, how do I restore?

I assume you mean on your IE start-up page? Open Internet Options in Control Panel, on the General tab, Change Home Page, click Apply, restart IE. Also, in Internet Options, select Programs tab, open Manage Add-Ons, remove ALL unnecessary Toolbars and Extensions and Search Providers, set Google as default, check the two boxes to the left bottom. When adding new software be careful to look at EVERY page in install, uncheck/refuse ALL Toolbars, Search, home page changes. Don't blindly click next. I would run freeware MALWAREBYTES: In the install UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot.

You're going to have to set a new home page for your browser. To do this, you have to go into the settings for the browser you use.

Every time I login my facebook account,it gets successfully login but the home page as well as I can't see anything in my account,I am suffering with the problem for last 7 days

Issue: Every time I login my facebook account,it gets successfully login but the home page as well as I can\'t see anything in my account,I am suffering with the problem for last 7 day.

Cause: May be a virus infection, Software conflicts of web browsers and maybe change in browsing settings


1) Create a System restore point as backup so that you can return back to the present settings if required.
Note: This is for a precautionary measure.

Steps to created System restore point:

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.

On the Welcome page, click Create a restore point.

On the Create a Restore Point page, enter a descriptive name for your restore point, and then click Create.

2) Try using different web browsers such as Mozilla firefox and Google chrome to see if the issue is with any one browser


3) If so and issue only with IE, try resetting the IE browser.

Steps to reset IE.

Find tools option in IE and the internet options in that and select it.

In the Internet options select advanced and find the reset button and click it and press ok.

This should work.


4) If the second step does not work, try reinstalling the Adobe flash player.

You can get Adobe flash player in below link:


5) If neither of it does not work, then you need to restore the system to an earlier date when it was working.

Hope these steps resolves issue.

If not please get back to me by replying.

I will assist you further

Thanks and regards,

How do i change my homepage to Yahoo?

Bring up the browser window and let it load to whatever page it is set for. Once it loads, click up in the address bar and type in and click enter. When the Yahoo screen loads, click on the "Tools" column and scroll down to "Internet Options". In this window the first area you see is the homepage tab. Click on "Use Current", this will make the current page your home page, which is Yahoo. Click apply and OK.
