Stop it from running whan the computer boots.
In the run dialog box type "msconfig" then click on the startup folder.
Remove the entry for gom.
OR use a program like CC Cleaner, in its tool menu is a startup edit, just disable or remove the entry.
CC cleaner also has an uninstall tab, you canuninstall the software from there.
When installing CC cleaner, you may wish to untick the yahoo toolbar option on the last page of the installer

Boyfriend is cheating hpw do i get into his fb without him knowing..and i dotn have his password.

Most likely you wont.... besides the fact that discussing this topic may seem un-ethical and probably is against this site's rules.

If you are really interested on this:
Could only be done if you had some kind of bruteforce or wordlist cracking capability, which even with super computing power will take forever and not always delivers successful results, and even then FB will probably detect, deny the multiple requests and ban your IP right away.

Perhaps you could get a key-logger ( and use it do skim through what you boyfriend has typed in search for his password)... but i would not recommend this, since key-loggers tend to have loads of malware in them...

I Warned you.... Good luck though... :)

What OS are you running?
If you are worried about a key logger then run a virus/malware/root kit scan. If you want to get even more in detail run a chkdisk from the
C:\ prompt and look for unindexed files. Better yet get a program like Malwarebytes (shareware) or Spybot Search and Destroy (Free) online and run those to root out potential pesky bugs. Stay off free download sites and virus check everything you download before installing. That is why they call them Trojans as they are piggybacked on legit programs or movies you download online.

How do I check to see if there is a key logger on my computer?

The best way to find key loggers in the system is by simply running a scan by 'Windows Defender'. Simply type Windows Defender in start menu and run the scan. The scan will find suspicious softwares and key loggers.
You can also easily check for key loggers in your system by using these two ways:

1) By checking the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. For this, press 'Windows Key+R' > type 'control'. That will open control panel. Now go to Add/Remove Programs in Programs and Features.
Now, look for suspicious softwares or key loggers.

2) Open task manager by pressing 'CTRL+SHIFT+ESC' > Open 'Processes' tab. Search for programs that look suspicious. This method is needed in case of advanced key loggers like KGB, etc.

Cant get into my yahoo says the id orpassswords invalid i thank someone changed it how do i chance it back

if you think someone has changed your password, immediately get a virus scanner on your computer, someone has installed (via download) a "key logger" which tracks all you keystrokes allowing the to see what your typing, this would include credit card numbers, passwords and anything else you type. As for your yahoo account, you can write to them, but in my experience, they are less than responsive to their customers needs. the easiet thing to do is to sign up with a new yahoo account with new name and etc. Its a pain I know, but this happens all the time to people. Just be carefull what you download and allow to run on your computer, these key loggers are nasty and hard to detect and get rid of. Good Luck

How to kill key logger malware?

MalwareBytes Anti-Malware is a good way to start. Download and install the free version. When you run the program it will want to update first thing. Let it update, then run a quick scan, which finds most malware. Let it fix whatever problems it finds and that should eliminate your logger. You can also run a full scan if you have any other worries, but don't be surprised if it takes a long time.

Keystroke logger

Try this site. I have used Ghost Key Logger. Works well. Beware that spyware and antivirus programs WILL see this program and warn you about it.
