The Yahoo Software comes with Spyware & Adware; never seen AT&T Yahoo Antivirus detect any virus in my experience. Unfortunately you have to install the software to setup your DSL for the first time; after that it's worthless. I would scan your computer with Microsoft Windows Defender or Ad-Aware by Lavasoft; both are free tools and find many of the common infections. Moreover, it wouldn't hurt to pay for a McAfee or a Nortin Subscription for virus protection; I use McAfee because it doesn't lag my system. There is a free virus protection program called AVG Free which I'm told works good for the price.

Flip the system upside down with the lid open and shake the crumbs out of the keyboard. If this and a can of air doesn't solve the issue, you will need to replace the keyboard.

Display flipped vertical

Hi, i'm not 100% on yours, but this may well lead you in the right direction, if you right click on your desktop, a menu will pop up, select personalize, then select - display settings and do it in there.
I have nvidia control panel and i can do it in there.
There may be a short cut key, if someone else reading this might like to clarify.
Try -
ctrl - alt and arrow key to turn 90 degrees
I hope this has helped you, if you need more help please ask.
