    What was the exact name of teh Antispyware program you installed? Did you get a pop-up message syaing you had spyware on your computer and the pop-up saying you should download their software.



    Use an verified online scanner like:



    Trend Micro HouseCall: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    Or Norton's Security Scan: http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/Welco...



    Make sure you don't have a virus or other spyware on your computer.

It may be couse of different things:
1. some anti viruses and anti spywares are not able to find the newst viruses, and don't forget that some viruses and spywares could get your speed. so it may be couase of some viruses or spyeares.
2. Check your pc by some useful softwares like Dr. Drive and some other optimize softwares.they could help you well.
3. Maybe your HDD is full, check it and remove some your stuffs.
4. Maybe you need to upgrade your hardwares!

How to stop pops-up ?when I open my internet connection so many pops-up about malicious pictures


Most of the spyware programs on the Internet that will infect your computer log the websites you visit so that they can launch pop-ups and advertise products for you to buy.


If you have recurring pop-ups caused by spyware that appear whenever you connect to the Internet, you will need to completely remove the spyware causing the problem.


The most effective way to remove all spyware from your machine is to use at least two different antispyware programs while your computer is in safe mode so that the spyware cannot open itself.


Navigate your web browser to a website that offers a spyware removal utility such as "Spybot" or "Lavasoft Adaware".


http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html spybot


http://www.lavasoft.com/ lavasoft


Download and install the antispyware software.

Navigate to a second website and download a secondary antispyware utility.


Restart your computer and wait for the manufacturer's logo to appear on the screen.

Press the "F8" key repeatedly until a new menu pops up.


Scroll down through the list of options and highlight the entry labeled as "Safe Mode."

Open up the first spyware utility you installed earlier once the operating system has finished loading in safe mode.


Click on the antispyware utility's "Update Now" button at the left side of the window.


Wait for the program to finish downloading the latest spyware detection routines.

Disconnect your computer from its Internet connection either by unplugging its Ethernet cable or by powering off your wireless router.


Click on the "Search For Problems" button above the "Update Now" button.

Wait for the program to finish scanning your computer's hard drive for spyware, and then click on the "Remove Selected Problems" button.


Close down the antispyware program.

Reconnect your computer to its Internet connection.


Open the second antispyware utility you downloaded earlier.

Run the program's update feature and then disconnect your computer from the Internet again.


Run the program's scan, and then remove any problems it finds.

Reconnect your Internet connection and then restart your computer to finish removing the recurring spyware pop-ups from your PC.


Hope this helps

What is windows defender.?


Windows Defender is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software by detecting and removing known spyware from your computer.

However, Windows Defender 2010 is a fake anti-virus application that shouldn't be confused with Windows defender from Microsoft which is perfectly legitimate software.

Which one are you inquiring about?

My yahoo has become VERY slow moving. I wait 30-40 seconds each time I do something.


I suggest you perform a malware or spyware scan. Download spyware hunter.google it.
Run the spyware scan and remove all detected spywares. after that i suggest running a full system virus scan using Kaspersky, bitdefender, or any other anti virus you may have.

There are total 29 spyware,trojan rougeand adware viruses in the pc software.how ican get rid of all these please .product is window vista.hp pavilion intel core 2 quad processor


You gave no mention of anti spyware or antivirus programs.

You need to reboot your computer in safe mode (F8) as it is starting.

Once in Safe Mode, run your antispyware, antivirus and antimalware programs. then restart in normal mode and run them again.

If you have none of these programs, try:

Advance system Care
- anti spyware
AVG AntiVirus
Security 360 - anti malware, trojans

good luck
