What was the last software installed on your computer that you are aware of - locate it in the add & remove programs and uninstall it.

your problem description indicates that you now have an adware in your system.

Hi There, I am sorry to hear about your computer. It sounds like you have a spyware or malware on your computer. Do you know if you have any virus and spyware program on your computer? Thanks, Mike

Not realy a problem but just need to know .

Carry as upright as possible to new location. If you have to tilt it, tilt back, not side to side. When in new position wait 8 hours for oil to settle back in compressor before plugging in and switching on. Check after 24 hours before using for food storage.

I have an Audio 10 cd in my Mercedes , (that was originally built by Alpine ). I cannot remove the wait mode to put in my code. Someone told me to put it in the freezer for 48hrs , which I have , but the...

To restore from WAIT , Leave the radio SWITCHED ON ...UNDISTURBED until the radio has automatically reset itself.

This may take several hours

The freezer method is an Urban Myth and DOES NOT WORK !
It may have already damaged your radio beyond repair.

Dvr not responding

There was a software update early this morning which caused your recvr to go to recovery mode until it downloads the new software which takes about 4 hours. Once this is done you should be just fine!

Update problem with Garmin Nuvi 255w

I had same problem. I called Garmin customer service who connected me to a computer rep. Garmin hooks with your computer that you have your Garmin plugged into.They can upload the proper software in no time at all.
The rep told me that after I updated my Garmin I might have turned off the unit before it completed updating the new software. You need to wait until the screen with "Where to?" appears.
It works great now. Prepare to wait on hold for a while. I waited just over an hour on Monday, their busiest day.

i think you need to update your antivirus cos viruses might have infected the system files. Update your anitvirus or download latest antivirus and scan you system, then try to install the game. If problem persists, do a clean operating system installation.
