It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

MBAM !


for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

It may just be a "leaking application"

These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

May I suggest you download
"hijackthis"

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

You have been hijacked.
Download HiJack this and run it
Download Adaware and run it
Make sure you anti-virus software is up to date (Avast! is excellent)
and make sure you keep your firewall on!

That will solve your problem
Reboot your computer and enter your preferred home page in Tools->Internet Options
Apply and Ok

Sorted!

If you are using Internet Explorer: click tools at the top, then internet options, then security. Click "Custom Level" button, go to the scripting section and disable active scripting. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Once done you can return to the previous settings.
If you are using Firefox go to tools > options > content. Click on disable Javascript. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Once done turn it back on.

Can not get rid of alot home page and i canot install yahoo home page


Would be nice to know your operating system, but, here goes. The router doesn't keep the "home page" It's in your internet explorer. Open up internet explorer and go to Yahoo's home page you want to make as your new home-page. Click on the TOOLS tab at the top. Scroll down to INTERNET OPTIONS and the big block will open up. Since your already on Yahoo's page you want to save, just click on "Use Current" to save the present page. Next time you open up Internet Explorer, your page will pop up. Easier done than said I'll bet.

I cannot get Yahoo ! to load as my home page


What browser? Did you change it in the preferences (Internet Options control panel for Internet Explorer; in Firefox, Tools: Options).

If it's Internet Explorer giving you problems, please allow me to recommend trying Firefox. It's faster, it's safer and it's pretty friendly to use. It's also free.

I cannot access my Yahoo e-mails. They show up on the home page but when I click to access or open them it says internet explorer cannot display this web page.


First thing to try is to clear your browser cache...

Here are instructions for these browsers:
  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox
Internet Explorer
  1. Under Tools, click Internet Options.
  2. On the "General" tab:
    1. In the "Temporary Internet Files" section (in the middle), click both Delete Cookies and Delete Files.
    2. In the “History” section, click Clear History.
  3. Click OK. Done!
Firefox
  1. Under Tools, click Clear Private Data.
  2. Ensure the “Cache” checkbox is checked.
  3. Click Clear Private Data Now.
Only other thing you can do is contact Yahoo. Login to your Yahoo account and try this link:

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/help_f.html?from_url=http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/

If the link doesn't work, click Help in the top right corner, click the Contact Us tab, and select the Technical Help form.
