Ok so I keep getting pop up after I downloaded and deleted this spyware! I barely use my internet and for pop up to just keep coming like there something wrong with it I'm confused? Please help!

1) Unfortunately you do not say what OS you are using or what browser, so can only give a general answer.
Make sure you have the pop up box checked.
EG for Mozilla
>Open Menu
> Check box "block pop up windows"

Google Addblock Plus and download this free software for whatever browser you are using

Dear Friend,

The only security system that I know can be Firewall or Antivirus. Now, every time you try to install something, Windows prompt you with a warning windows saying that a particular software is about to install and you only have a Yes or No key. If this is the case, click Yes.

If this is something related to your Antivirus or Firewall, disable it and try to install. After installation, enable it back to keep your computer secure.

Good Luck!

I am not able to download macromedia flash 5 in my computer

sometimes your computer wont let you download and install a program because of your firewall and security settings. try to download and install again and see if you see a small bar pop up just beneath the tabs telling you something was blocked. click on the bar and select install or download or whatever it may say it will be the first option. if this bar does not pop up and you still cannot download go the start menu select the control panel. select security settings and turn off the firewall and try it again it should work.

Skype won't go past the initialising download stage - what do i do? there are only two options on the box - pause or cancel

You need to go on your control centre and check if your firewalls on. If it is you need to unblock Skype. I had a similar problem, what you need to do is when you click download check to see if it says windows defence has blocked a download. Or check if you get a pop up saying Skype is wanted to access the internet. It should be fine when you enable it to download.

What I would do is go to control panel and click on the firewall and see if it is stopping you. If that does not work I would contact the Live IT sipport and see if it is on their end. Thank you for using Fixya

How to disable firewall connections on an HP

Hi there,

As its HP im guessing you will have Nortons Anti Virus Running On The System, If You Left Click This For A Minute And Press Disable That Should Disable Your Firewall.
