You have a virus, this looks like one that is spyware based. These can be difficult to get rid of.
1. Download, install and Run CCleaner http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ - download latest version (upper right hand corner)
a. When you start to run it - check off EVERYTHING, ignore warnings - and run it till it comes up with 0 bytes removed (if possible) - Then run its registry cleaner.

2. Download, install and run SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html) - click on the 1st download on that page.

3. Then Download, install and run Adaware - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad-aware_se_personal.php

a. Make SURE you do NOT run at the same time - just one after another till you it is clean - it may (most likey) take more than one run through.


This MAY remove your problems - viruses and spyware once infected is very hard to tackle - and it is time comsuming, but it can be done.

Good Luck.

    The answer is yes. What I would do is back up EVERYTHING, docs, pics, email, favorites, ect. (don't forget your email address) - do a secure wipe on your drive (http://www.killdisk.com/ - is just one of the free wipes you can download) - then reload using the software the computer company gave you.

    Do you have a Flash Drive? 1-2 gig flash drive would be the best.



    Highlight everything in "my documents" (that will include your pictures - and drop and drag to your flash drive (if you flash drive is not large enough to hold everything - empty it once full to another computer under a file you will know) - then open up Internet Explorer - click on File, then import/export, and export your favorites - DO NOT EXPORT YOUR COOKIES - there could be where the virus/spyware is hiding.

    Then click on Start, then Search, all files and folders look for *.dbx - highlight all of them and copy to your flash drive.

    Then open up Outlook Express - Click on File, then import export - export contacts (messages do not export from OE, only from MSOutlook)

    This should save your most important items.

My window7 computer wont load my videos


Hi there,
There are many possibly issues that can cause online videos to not load. For as start the first two pages I link below are from HP support and address online and performance issues. If your system is not an HP , just ignore or work around the portions referring to HP specific utilities like the HP Support Assistant. Instead, just be sure you have the correct and most up to date drivers for your system loaded, and then proceed.

Basic Internet connection Troubleshooting


Test if your actually connected to the internet.

This assumes web pages fail. if not pingtest.net is one of many great sites to test connection speed.

Select 'Start' button
Select 'Run'
Type 'cmd'
Select 'Ok'
This opens a command window. Black with white text.
Type "ping 4.2.2.2" without quotes.
If you see "reply from" then you are connected but you may need to test DNS resolution.

DNS test:

Same command window.
Type "ping pingtest.net" without quotes

If you get a 'reply from' then you can resolve DNS.

If any of these ping test fail start with resetting your connection, see ipconfig /renew and/or ipconfig /flushdns then reviewing your connections and possibly contact your ISP.

Doing a Repair on XP - Vista - Windows 7 does the same (but more) as ipconfig.

Internet Explorer 7

1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.
Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode

An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
3. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly
