I keep losing Yahoo.com as my "home page". I have to re-set it as my home page 7-8 times/night. Help Please


Hi Nenitabrande,

This happens due to browser hijacker application or adware/spyware,

Therefore to remove this problem you should download Adaware or similar softwares and then these problem would be nailed probably.

Also keep updating your adaware application to the latest version and also if possible , re-install internet explorer from the ad remove options in the control panel and I am sure this would help.

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

I recommend running a few programs to make sure that you don't have a virus, spyware or adware hiding in your system. Avast is a free anti-virus tool that is very effective. Super-anti-spyware is great for getting rid of spyware, and Adaware is a great anti-adware tool --- both of these are also free. Try downloading these programs (all 3) and run them on your computer -- this will likely get your system running like normal. Once you have run these, run a disk cleanup and defragmenter to get everything into tip-top shape.

  1. Check to see if the problem is adware or your own programs that are just lagging up your computer. Open the Task Manager [CTRL + ALT + DEL] and look at the processes tab. Find any processes that have an abnormally high Memory Usage. If you don't recognize their names, you may have spyware, however, you should not try to disable them in the Task Manager.
  2. Go to google.com and type in the names of suspicious looking executables. Pages like processlibrary.com or neuber.com are good at identifying malicious processes. [Note: some viruses disguise themselves as windows processes, it is well worth googling0 every process in task manager to find out which could be malicious]
  3. When discovered which processes are malicious, go to My Computer and search your C: drive for the executable. Delete the executable and any associated files. If an error message saying it is in use, stop the process using task manager and try again.
  4. When dealing with executables disguised as windows processes, search for them as described in the previous step. And if any duplicates appear in the search results, take CARE to only delete the suspect file that is not where it should be i.e. not in C:WINDOWSSystem32. When identified as malicious, delete the executable and associated files as before.
  5. Adware often comes 'packaged' with other programs such from places such as Yahoo! and Smiley Central. By not installing/downloading these programs you minimize the amount of adware/spyware you get. Delete these programs first.
  6. For all other Spyware/Adware download a free, easy-to-use anti-adware program like Spybot-S&D or AdAware. AdAware is a bit easier and is recommended for inexperienced users. NOTE: These programs will catch what the other misses so install both.
  7. Also there is free 'AVG free edition': "AVG" which is a free anti virus program, and should find any or most viruses and Trojan horses in your system, and that gives the same protection as Norton or McAfee, and that sends regular updates automatically and by request.
  8. Use a browser such as Mozilla Firefox, which blocks most adware.
  9. Also, Microsoft's Windows Defender provides real-time scanning of your system, and has a comprehensive definitions library that does an excellent job of detecting spyware.
If this does not work please e-mail me at kasey.fleming@hotmail.com for further help. I want to try and resolve this issue for you.

use these 3 programs to keep your PC clean

Firefox web browser instead of Internet Explorer
i HATE IE... Firefox is much faster and safer because it constantly get updates which makes it harder for hackers to attack your PC from it. its too easy to attack Internet Explorer because they rarely update it.

Threatfire to help your current anti-virus program
http://www.threatfire.com/

Adaware - removes spyware and adware
And run this once every couple of weeks update it and let it scan while you leave the computer for a couple of hours

My computer keeps shutting down. I dont have any security on my computer and I can't download the security that is supposed to come with my subscription to comcast.


try here for a/v and antispy. i recommend avgfree, avast or avira for a/v. superantispy and/or malwarebytes for anti spy, threatfire for unknown malware, and adaware for adware.
use only one anti-virus, the others can be loaded together as long as they don't scan at same time.
you may get a warning about adaware when an anti-virus is present but there won't be any problems with it.
all are free software.

Virus protection


I'm assuming you mean "AdAware". If so, the answer is: No, you don't have to but it's advisable. This is because the Kaspersky software performs pretty much the same function as AdAware (as well as its other functions). So if you had both of them running, you'd have two products doing the same thing which would impact the PC's performance to some extent. Having said that, if the PC is quick enough for you, having both of them won't do any harm.

So, you could
  • Turn off Kaspersky's adware-blocking function and keep AdAware installed
  • Just uninstall AdAware
  • Leave them both installed if it causes you no problems.
whichever you find works better for you.

You'll find folks who'll come down heavily in favour of one solution or the other but in reality, there's nothing much to choose between them.

Pc clean up


Run a couple of anti-spyware and anti-adware programs first. If you don't have any you can download Spybot and Adware. They are both free and good programs. I'll bet you find alot of spyware. Then run your disk defragmenter. It's under accessories/system. After you have done that add a comment and let me know how it's running. I'll be back to check on you. You can download spybot if you don't have it from here: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html You can download AdAware if you don't have it from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Slow performance. I have to wait much time to use my PC


Sounds like you have alot of adware and or spyware on your machine. Look up a free scanner called adaware-se and do a scan to see if anything is found. Typically, adware, spyware will install numerous files on a pc without your consent, naturally not knowing it is happening. If you need further assistance, I'll be more than glad to help.
