Question about Computers & Internet
I cannot use my old desktop pc to connect to the internet and believe that the system is full of bugs.the computer is six years old and did'nt use it for internet access until this year.but now it's sitting in a box doing nothing and would greatly like to mend the problem with it.i am using a new desktop at the moment which is connected to the net and fear if i tried to connect my new with old pc then i would corrupt my new one also.
On any computer, download ATF CLEANER from http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=25 save it to a flash drive so you can move it from computer to computer. copy it from the flashdrive to the desktop on the buggy computer. RUN IT!
check the box saying "select all" then click on the "empty selected" button below it. this will NOT remove any windows system files, it only clears trash you pick up on the net in temporary files and caches.
This may take a few minutes the first time as it clears the trash. I had a computer i worked on today that it cleared about 3 GIGABYTE of stuff out, all of which goes out to the internet and updates itself if your running default internet explorer settings.
Anyway, run this more than once, the second time your looking for a message stating "no files removed", when you see this you know you are clean. make sure you dont have your broswer running while you run it as you will not get a good reading with it pulling in data.
I run this program everytime i turn off the broswer, if used all the time , there's no need for a spyware program.
**NOTE** If you run this AFT cleaner with no other programs open and it never gives you the "no files found" message, you should reboot in safe mode and run your virus scanner. What this implies is that something is going out to the internet and gathering data, which could be a virus or a piece of software trying to update itself.
