You need to install an anti spyware program such as 'Spybot search and destroy which you can download free from the internet at http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Spybot_Search_and_Destroy/1043809773/1
Once downloaded, install the application then restart your computer and run the Spybot application, allowing it to do a full system scan for spyware. This may take a long time but should cure your system from any spyware it may have.

According to the third article of the Safety section in Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, willfully compromising a user's account on the social networking constitutes a violation of Facebook's user agreement.

Reporting such violations may be performed in a number of ways, depending on the situation. If either you or your friend's Facebook account has been hacked, file a report through Facebook's Help Center.

If you are aware of a specific user on Facebook who is engaged in hacking other accounts, file a report regarding his activity through his profile page.

Go to Facebook.com, type the email and password associated with your account in the corresponding text fields and press "Enter."


Click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click "Security" in the "Popular Topics" section.
Click "I Think My Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.
Click either of the two security questions, depending on your situation, and click "Secure it here."
Click "Secure Account" and click "Continue."
Complete each of the steps for securing your account, including changing your password, changing your email password, reviewing your changes and unlocking your account.

Click "Done" to complete the process.

The developers at Facebook receive a notification regarding your account being compromised. Report Your Friend's Compromised Profile

Sign into Facebook, click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."
Click the "Security" icon in the "Popular Topics" section.
Click "I Think My Friend's Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.
Click any of the three questions depending on your circumstances and click "File a Report."
Click your friend's full name, his birthday, the email associated with his account and a description of the situation in the corresponding text fields.
Click "Submit" to send the report to the developers at Facebook.
Report a Profile on Facebook

Log into Facebook, click the "Search" text field and type the name of the profile you want to report for hacking.
Scroll down and click "Report/Block This Person" in the left side bar.
Click "Unfriend" or "Block" depending on the situation and click "This Person is Bullying or Harassing Me," click the drop-down menu and select "Other."

Facebook does not offer an option in this drop-down menu that applies specifically to hacking, but selecting this option is the best fit for that form of violation.
Click the user's name at the top of the page, type a report regarding the account hacking in the text field and press "Enter."

The report is sent to the Facebook developers.

Windows: USB Dongle shows up in Device Manager as Disk Drives: KVM vmDisk USB Device, and DVD/CD-ROM Drives: KVM vmDisk USB Device. Steals drive letters I need. How to get around this? have uninstalled...


Hi Bruce:
Sorry to hear that you are having problems. If you still want to use the device, you can assign drive letters to you other devices that do not disrupt the use of you KVM switch. Using device manager, you can change drive letters on all drives except your hard drive, usually drive 0.

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open


The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections. The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.


As for uninstalling the KVM device, if you want to completely remove all files from your computer, do a search (off the start menu) and search for *KVM vmDisk USB Device".

The delete all the files that are found in the search.


Let me know if I can assist you further or you need any clarification on my instructions.

Do you understand that most of the help you receive here is people helping people for free.
In other words we don't get paid from fixya...
What you should do is call comcast and there techs can take over your computer and fix the settings in two minutes after they receive your information about your equipment. I agree that Microsoft could nor would help other then show you how to make your connections if you are using MS instead of Linksys connections. But just that fact that someone tried to help you make me think that person was not lazy.
Now if you think me lazy, ok but the best solution, fastest solution, would be to contact Comcast, and mention you are paying them for service. Good evening.

Internet Explorer problem


It is possible you have some spyware/adware or virus on your machine.
If you don't already have it I would suggest running some sort of antivirus and also antispyware software on your machine to check.

Free AnitVirus software at http://free.grisoft.com/
And AntiSpyware software at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

You may need to download this on another machine and then copy across to the machine with the problem.

Good luck
