How can I fix the text size on every webpage? Also,How do I get rid of internet explorer since I have Google Chrome now?


for to get rid of the explorer you just have to get t the start ..and set program access and defaults ..You will choose not to enable internet explorer and choose non windows..and set each program you need to use..and these will open when you click the internet or mail ..
For to enlarge a page web writing ..you can use the ctrl+scroll the wheel o r..just change the resolution with a smaller one and this way you will enlarge all on desktop and web pages..
By the way ..about explorer ..cause it is a windows built in program ..you can not uninstall it completely ..but the way I suggested is possible to disable the access to it and will not appear on the start ..and about google chrome ...even if it is a good and fast browser..i will rec. the use of Mozilla firefox instead.cause it is more complete ..and have possibilities to use more add ons and bars and ..things google chrome will not offer..in tools..but it still as fast ..and not invasive like explorer.

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini
%Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WorkgroupCrawler\Shares\”shared” = “[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Yahoo Messengger” = “%System%\gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\”Shell” = “Explorer.exe gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”AtTaskMaxHours” = “0′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”NextAtJobId” = “2′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableTaskMgr” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableRegistryTools” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\”NofolderOptions” = “1′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Page_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Search_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Search Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′ Note: In any Gphone.exe files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. If you’re using Windows NT/2000/XP, by default this is “C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT USER]” (e.g., “C:\Documents and Settings\JoeSmith”).
