Question about HP PAVILION A6230N DESKTOP PC

HP vista desktop. keep getting permission "pop-ups" from adobe and google tool bar.

My father-in-law bought a pc on 9-20-07. it's a HP w/vista. he paid to have trend micro anti virus software to be installed. a couple of days ago he started getting "pop-ups" asking to allow adobe flash player of google tool bar to run. doesn't make a difference what you click, they (and only the two mentioned) keep popping up repeatedly. he called me and i asked when he installed norton because it had just expired. he said he never did....and the trend micro was never installed. i removed norton, installed trend micro, ran scans, and computer is much faster but he still gets these "pop-ups". his wife's account works perfectly normal. his is the administrator account in which i did everything. any ideas?

#1 when you ran the scan, did it find and "fix" a problem...
norton (apparently) let in something like that to my unit and the
first thing I did was delete norton, then I re-formatted using the factory disk/not just restored/ and then it took me about 9 days, from the time I first downloaded it till I could actually(no glitches no dissapearing internet, no other problems) feal like I had a working AV program. That was an AVG security suite $54.95
not AVG 7.5 but AVG 8.0...7.5 is free download - rock bottom minimum protection.
I must say, in all fairness, that it seemed to be a problem with my machine that made it take the 8-9 days to iron out the bugs in it( not continuos work of course)....
Hate to say it but sometimes when files are corrupted by a virus or spibot etc. there doesn't seem to be anything to do except won't show up in the program list/that way you could delete it, or give it's address/ so you could place the add. in your "Blocked addresses" file on internet security, under least your unit is funtioning/so you can back up
(on a cd) the files you want to keep

Adobe reader 8 I am researching a subject and I keep getting pop ups "Am invalid plug in has been detected by adobe reader (8) the program will close immediately" and it does. 1)why am I getting...

Just update your reader version to Adobe 10.1.1. It is now on air, and is for free. Get into by google search. You can see the download. It cannot be saved to anywhere, but can be installed by cliking "Run". Will take about half an hour to finish. The installation wizard is there to help you. It will replace your present Adobe-8 by Adobe-10.1.1
I've downloded the same a few while ago. Seems to be very very good than Adobe-9, I was using before. Check it. You will like it and can work with no more problems. OK.

I used Tax Act to file my income returns, but when I went to print the state, I got a message that Internet Explorer had blocked this site. I checked under Tools and The pop up blocker is not on.

IE is kinda messed up when it comes to working right. Most times it is some kinda other pop up blocker like yahoo tool bar, Google or some times even the anti virus one. Under address bar make sure there nothing that shows like little eye kinda looking thing with line though it or some thing that just shows a number. This should help.

Google Earth disappeared after updating Adobe Reader 9

Try to do a system restore, this should help you to get the application back. On the start search, type restore, select system restore, on the system restore screen choose the option which says select another restore point, hit next, choose the restore point when the system was working fine, hit next, let the computer go through the restore process. When computer restarts normally, you should be able to use the google earth.

Pop up on computer says I have low disk space on hp-recovery(d) but I have nothing on that drive to get rid of

well..that's a drive that HP sets aside, as part of your c drive for recovery. you can back that up online, or elsewhere, and then wipe that part clean..if you like.. but be careful NOT to wipe the other side of the disk..

another approach, is to re partion the drive, but that's not something that I advise for just anyone.
