Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Why can't anyone see when i'm online?

I've tried deleting your program and reinstalling it, checking the stealth settings, and even checking to make sure it shows that i'm NOT invisible to everyone. Nothing is working. my computer shows I'm online - but no one can see when i am online.

1. Sign in at yahoo messenger
2. Click the Messenger on the top of the yahoo messenger window
3. Select Preferences
4. Click Privacy

Why is Google page in tiny print through google chrome all of a sudden ?Also you tube is zoomed to the max.I can't view you tube.Everything else is ok on other sites.Please help


Conduit is malware. Get rid of it first, and reboot. Start by downloading the free version of Malwarebytes (Anti-Malware) from https://www.malwarebytes.com/ install it and run it - that takes an hour or more. It should locate and deal with malware like Conduit in your computer. Then reboot and try again.
There are more detailed methods if that did not remove it all.

Cannot open Google Chrome


you need to perform a full manual uninstall of chrome. sounds like you know your way around a computer, you should go ahead and give this a shot (be sure to delete the folder on the last step)
most of chrome resides in a folder under your user account directory. getting rid of the bad install and then re installing the latest version of chrome from google should set you straight.

Most likely you have another chat program using the camera. Right click on the icons in the systray next to the clock and exit programs. After exiting each program, try the camera again. The last program you exit before the camera is the one causing the problem. Restart the computer and right click on that program and try and set it to not start when the Windows starts.

My son was set up and running but this morning he tried to go online and it told him he was signed off although the internet connection is enabled any ideas please


I would try resetting your router and seeing if the problem persists.
The problem also could be malware. Malware can get into your system and do some pretty harmful stuff. I would recommend both these 2 antivirus programs.
Malwarebytes and Avast Antivirus. These programs are both free.
After you've done a virus scan and the problem is still continuing to happen. There's only one thing you can do. Reinstall. Make sure all infected Items are removed. If you've got a USB or anything that's got infected items on it, and once you reinstall your pc, and put the infected USB back into the computer, Your going to have to reinstall again. so if you scan for viruses remove them. The computer should work again :)
I hope this helped jumboy124 :)

Hello there,

Just do a Windows Update. Of course by doing this, your windows copy of license should be guinuine, otherwise, it would cost you more trouble.

After updating, you need to reinstall the magic jack again.

Yes there is an option that you can use to restore deleted files. Its called System Restore. You did not provide any information about your Windows version so the procedure may be a bit different.

From XP onwards the System Restore option is found: Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore. You can also access it through Help and Support by typing System Restore in search bar.

Try restoring your Windows to a date where it worked fine. Try the most recent date before you started experiencing this issue.

You should also check if the Magic Jack is working OK by plugging it another PC.

If System Restores fails, its better to backup your data on D: and reinstall Windows than to keep looking for a solution. This will save you time and frustration.
