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.

I cannot get internet explorer 7 back on why. Thanks.


if you have upgraded to newer internet explorer you might not be permitted to revert back to a lesser due compatability programs that need a higher level of internet explorer to run
if you mean you cant get an internet connection
you will have to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online
hope this helps

Not able to go online


have you been online with this computer before?

Once you have an Internet Service Provider ,ISP,
you just need a modem and phone line access,
plug modem into phone socket and then into the computer,

My example modem is.........

Speed Touch 5x6v6 - Broadband Modem

log on to the modem using Internet Explorer Bar
Type 192.168.254
this will open the modems log on menu
then enter user name and password
its factory default is
user ADMIN
password ADMIN or 1234

once open there are some menu options on the main page

Speed Touch,
Broadband Connection,
Toolbox,
Home Network,

to add new user and password,
go to toolbox,
user management,
add new user
add password,(write down username and password)
change default user
save and test
should have a green tick next to new default user now

selecting broadband ... shows both your,
dsl connection and internet connection status,
with a green tick next to each heading.

Home network will show you...
all devices connected to this modems network ie
the other computers and printers etc,
connected on your network.
In network ,select your computer in the menu tree,
select configure
this give you a menu to add info about your computer
ie name info, comupters ip address,
access to the local intranet or the internet

Now lets connect to the internet

select Broadband from fornt page
menu will open and display
DSL & Internet Connections
here we test functionality.on? or off?

Now we go to your computer,
start my network connection
run wizard in my network places
select new connection
follow prompts to the end.

open internet explorer
if web page opens then we are done and finished,
open tools and internet options,
connections and then lan settings
select automatically detect
Apply then close
Test webpage again,
when ok shut down and restart,
to save the computers new settings ,
Test again with internet explorrer.

if no connections run wizard again,

Hope this Helps,Cheers Misterdj

How do i set it up manually?


Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the Lan ports,
and to the network-card in a computer (running Windows XP or Vista or 7).

Via Internet Explorer, access the web-interface "inside" the router,
and run the "Network Setup Wizard", and run the "Wireless Setup Wizard".

That's all -- there is nothing dependent on "Windows 7".

Internet Applications wont connect - Vista


I am running Windows 7 (the new vista) so I hope I can help. Go to the "Start" button and select "Control Panel". Click on "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing Center". You shouls see something like: Computer =====Network ====== Internet. If there is an "X" on one of the connections, that may help you decide which option further down to try. You can keep me posted if this helps to this point.

White screen suddenly appears Blank Page Windows


Try these steps first. I assume you are using IE 7. If these steps do not work try reinstalling your IE. Let me know if you need anything else. Good Luck.

Method 1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer 7, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:
  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.
A progress bar is displayed to indicate that the browsing history is being cleared. After this process is complete, test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 2.
Method 2: Reset security settings for Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you configure security settings to be too restrictive, you may prevent Internet Explorer 7 from displaying certain Web sites. To determine whether an issue is caused by overly restrictive security settings, revert to default security settings. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Security tab.
  4. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
After you do this, test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 3.

Note If this method does not resolve the issue, you can restore Internet Explorer 7 to its previous security level.
Method 3: Run Internet Explorer 7 in "No Add-Ons" mode loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Internet Explorer 7 add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer 7. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer 7 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 7 opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
  3. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 4.
If no errors occur, the problem is caused by one of the add-ons that typically load together with Internet Explorer 7. In this case, use one of the following options.
Option 1: Reset Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Reset Internet Explorer 7 to its default configuration. This step will also disable any add-ons, plug-ins, or toolbars that are installed. Although this solution is quick, it also means that, if you want to use any of those add-ons in the future, they must be reinstalled. To reset Internet Explorer 7 settings, use Method 4.
Option 2: Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the issue loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Use the Manage Add-ons tool in Internet Explorer 7 to individually disable each add-on to determine which add-on is causing errors. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, point to Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.
  3. In the Show box, select Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer.
  4. For each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable under Settings.
  5. When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.
  6. Exit and then restart Internet Explorer 7.
  7. If issues do not occur, repeat steps 1 through 3.
  8. Click Enable for a single add-on.
  9. Repeat steps 6 through 8 until you determine which add-on causes errors to occur.

Laptop Cannot Connect To Internet


You shouldn't have to run the setup wizard. You should be able to plug it in and click on internet explorer and it will connect. This is built into the operating system. If it doesn't do this, then you will need the disc to run a system repair.
