Or download a free antivirus solution, like AVG, and an anti-apyware program like Spybot or Ad-Aware or NoAdware. Or Windows Defender.

The computer is having constant pops up and with the highspeed internet it runs slow. already it has an antivirus agent.l can't figure out what the problem is.


The popups could be
a) Ads from the websites
b) Addons you have installed on your browser (every time you load a site addon need to load to, and that could be .01 to 5.0 second, but they add up)
c) It is most likely some malware or adware installed on your computer. I would look into installing malwarebytes (its free) or an equivalent for adware and run a scan and see if that helps.
d) There are addons that can block popups and delete cookies
e) The speed issue can be many things, virus to adware not being one of them (could be hardware/software problems)

How can I get rid of pop-ups on chrome and Internet explorer--my mcafe security system is working


Hi,
Before jumping into a conclusion that your computer is infected, please check if you have programs like Strongvault, Wajam installed. They will give you popups.
If not use the following tool from McAfee to scan for suspicious files in the computer.

After downloading a game for my son onto his computer he recieved a message that the application crashed. What does this mean? How is it fixed? He is quite upset and I don't know what to do


mostlly this happens when you downloaded a corrupt file, anyway let see if we can fix it using the restore mode, if you're already familiar with it try to restore it using the date before the game was installed if not follow these instruction.

1. upon bootup press "F8" and wait for the option that lets you select some option such as safe mode, safemode with networking, etc, etc,

2. select the "safe mode", your pc will load with only minimal option a popup box will appear asking if you're going to use restore mode. (if your pc crashes before it loads the system stop rigth here, your system needs to be reformat, otherwise pls proceed)

3. click "START", "Program", "Accessories", "System Tools", and then "System restore"

4.popup box will appear select ok or continue until you reach the calendar option that will let you select the date you want to restore in an earlier time, pls select the date before you install the game ex. you install the game on 10/15/09, then select the 10/14/09 or later then select ok or continue until it reaches finish.

5. reboot the pc, this should solve your problem

I just want my money back. Because it asks me to uninstall a program I want to keep, Mcafee


Since McAfee is asking you to uninstall it, I am sure the program would have come in the spyware/adware list. They may have analysed that the software might create problems in your computer.

Do this.

install Microsoft virtual pc 2007, install xp on a virtual machine using this software.
Log into the virutal machin win xp , and instlal your software. If you connect to internet using that software, you can also install the internet device drivers.

YOu happy, Mcafee happy! atlast your systemis safe.

Sir, my operating system is xp, but this system has been restarting from since 3 months.. i dont knw what is problem


When your computer repeatedly restarts itself it's usually a virus, or some form of bad adware and/or spyware. Run a good virus scan, I recommend McAfee and I beleive the website has a free online scanner and a free trial offer. McAfee is capable of detecting viruses, adware and spyware. www.mcafee.com

I keep having problems with popups being disallowed on gaydar with my firefox browser even tho they are disabled


You need some anti-adware virus protection. You can buy it from Norton, McAfee, AVG, etc. Just Firefox browser will not protect you. However if you have a windows machine, windows Vista has Windows Defender that comes with Vista that blocks pop ups..need to get it soon before you get a bad virus.

Can't get rid of McAfee popup


Start->Setting->Control Panel->Add/Remove Software
and un-install McAfee software
There should be two or three McAfee related software. After the un-install the software, the popup will be gone!

By the way, it is always safer to have an active Anti Virus protection.
