Remove yahoo search using add-remove programs. ITs junk anyways and gives you more pop ups anyways. just use the regular yahoo or add the home page as an extra home page so it open to it when you open explorer. ( IE7 + 8) allows multiple Home pages.

Just like google, yahoo tool bar is added clutter.

If you want it though, just remove it like I said and try re-installing it.

Hey welcome to fixya. i hope u 'll be fine.
To remove the infections from your PC u have to install an anti virus. The best anti virus i recommend is AVG 9. The latest version of AVG is 9. so u have to search it and install on ur PC. its free of cost just u have to download it and its easily availible on different sites. After downloading install it on your PC. when it 'll be installed open it there is option of residential shield in it. if it is not active, active it after it click on scan computer, it 'll take some time and 'll scan your whole PC. in the end of scanning click on remove all the infections and 'll remove all the infections and viruses of your PC.
i hope this solution 'll helpful 4 u. Always hope 4 the best :))

Google mail and search


To resolve virus issues, I would recommend using Avast Antivirus. It is free for home use, and after installation will allow you to run a boot-time scan that will take out any viruses before windows even loads. You can get the software at www.avast.com

System restore cant restore computer to earlier times and ad-aware freezes mid scan


Go to a friends computer and search for "Trinity Rescue CD version 3.3", try to get build 321 or greater. Burn the ISO file you download on to a CD blank and then set the computer to boot from CD (This setting should be in the BIOS settings). Boot with the Trinity Rescue CD you just created and make sure the computer is plugged into a known good network connection (not a modem connection but a cable or DSL connection) chose item number 6 (I think) on the menu. Item #6 should be "Virus scan non-interactive" Be aware that you only have 10 seconds to choose the item you want from the menu before Trinity Rescue CD boots. use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down the menu. After you choose Virus scan non-interactive, the computer will reach out to the internet and update it's virus checkers and scan your computer for viruses and rootkits. This might take a while. If you have a larger hard drive (80GB or larger) try this before you go to bed and let the Virus scan run all night. When it is done scanning (it will scan your hard drive with 5 different virus scanners) it will have a command prompt (DOS) type screen type "exit" and remove the CD and reboot your computer using the hard drive and THEN try to run Lavasoft ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy.
