Sounds like you have a malware infection please download hijack this from this link http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log in an email to me emmit6378@yahoo.com It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.
I will be happy to help you analyze the results.

How do i delete cookies


Three great free programs will solve your problems on cookies. The first is CCLEANER, second one is SuperAntiVirus from superantivirus.com and another good one is Malwarebytes.

These are great programs and free to use. The CCLEANER program will also help clean the trash from your registry too, There is a tab on the left side to clean and fix the registry. I have been a very happy user of all three of these great programs and then purchased the full version which is even better. Try them out! Regards, Dennis

Tip

How to fix a slow computer


All of the Utilities mentioned in this tip are FREEWARE, readily available on the Internet. Some have "nags", but are still free. In the spirit of keeping things free, I will tell you, as a computer technician, what I do to keep my computers running smooth.
I am by no means pushing these FREE Utilities. I recommend them only because they are free and, most importantly, because they WORK. These Utilities are time tested. I have used them on many computers for many years with no ill effect.

Before beginning, it is highly recommended to set a restore point. That way, if you get carried away in your clean up, you have a restore point. In fact, once you get your computer running good, it's not a bad idea to set another restore point.
To set a restore point go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Then look for "create a restore point" and follow it out. After creating the restore point, it's best to shut the computer down completely, then turn it back on.

Also, it takes time to do all these things, so plan accordingly. Your patience will be rewarded with a faster computer.

The FIRST thing that I do to fix a slow computer is get rid of all the junk. the free Utility for doing that is:
http://www.eusing.com/Window_Washer/Window_Washer.htm

Just skip the "nag" and click on "wash settings". Under the "windows" "system" tab, check "temporary files". Under the "browsers" tab, check "IE Cache (temporary internet files)" and "IE cookies" Do like wise for Firefox if you use it. You can check all the other stuff if you want, but these are the main ones that you want to clear. More info about cookies later.

2...Run an anti-spyware Utility such as mbam:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Download it, install it, update it, run it, scan entire system.
Of course, you can use the anti-spyware/antivirus of your choice.
Some other good free anti-spyware:
http://www.superantispyware.com/
http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage
http://www.threatfire.com/download/

3...Run defrag. Before running defrag, you want to shut down as many applications and processes as you can. Start by physically disconnecting your internet connection, then shutting down your firewall, antivirus, antispyware, etc. Plus, right click all that stuff in the lower right corner of the task bar and exit as much stuff as you can.

You can also run defrag from safe mode. Just push F8 when your computer first starts and select "safe mode".
Then run defrag: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter.

4...The next thing to do is run a little known Windows Utility, which is part of the Windows System File Protection called System File Checker (SFC). This program ensures that all of your Windows system files are intact and in the right place. Windows system files sometimes get corrupted or deleted in various ways, sometimes resulting in error messages like: "missing dll" and other nasties. Viruses and malware sometimes attach themselve's to Windows system files, so guess what happens when those files are deleted by your antivirus program? THEY GET DELETED TOO. That's the purpose of the quarantine...to make sure the system still runs without those files before deleting them.
To run SFC you must have a copy of your Windows installation CD. Insert the CD in your drive and wait for the Windows installation window to appear, then click on "exit". You must have the CD so the program can pull any files that it needs from it.
Then go to start>run type in "cmd" (without the quotation marks, then click "OK". Then type: sfc/scannow
Let that run until it's done.

5...Now you want to get all the junk from your registry. One must be very careful when running a registry cleaner, as some of them do too good of a job, causing problems. For this reason the only registry cleaner that I recommend is free and one that I have used for _years_ without a problem. Not to saya problem can't occur, but it also has a restore feature:
http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm

Don't be surprised if you have 300 to 600 invalid entries.
Also, avoid the temptation to run this too much. Once a month is plenty.

6...Now go to the Windows update Website and download and install all updates.

7...Run defrag again.

8...Another program to run is one called "Autoruns" Nothing slows a computer down more than a bunch of stuff that just doen't need to be running until it's needed. You be amazed of all the stuff that is running unnecessarily on your computer:
http://www.sixfiles.com/dbase/files/sysinternals-autoruns.html

Once you get your computer running smooth, keep it that way with a little maintanance. Here's a schedule you can use:

Daily or when IE or Firefox seems slow: Run Free Intenet Window Washer (Eusing). It also has a cookies manager. Clear all your cookies, then go to ONE of your regular websites. Then go to the cookie manager and add those cookies to the "cookies to keep" column. Then clear all your cookies again. Go to your next favorite website and repeat the process. Once you have all your "good" cookies added to the cookies manager, you can then delete all future cookies while leaving the ones you need for quick webpage retrivial intact.

Weekly: Anti-malware program(s), defrag, Windows update,

Monthly: SFC, Autoruns, Eusing registry cleaner. The registry cleaner can also be ran after un-installing programs.

Some other good freeware:
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
For removing those pesky programs that won't uninstall.

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/sbdownload.html
Spywareblaster.

http://www.zonealarm.com/security/en-us/zonealarm-pc-security-free-firewall.htm
This is a good firewall. If you have broadband this is a must!

http://duplicate-file-finder.en.softonic.com/download-version/duplicate-file-finder-3.4
Great for removing duplicate files.

Last but not least: Arovax Shield:
http://www.arovaxshield.com/

The secret to keeping a machine clean is not to let it messed up in the first place. Arovax Shield is excellent protection. In fact, it's too good. You want to shut it off when installing programs, as it won't allow any changes to the registry.

Again, my intentions are not to push any particular software, only to convey what free software that I have found and used over the years that work for me.

If you have done all of the above and still have a slow computer, I have the following suggestions:

1...Clean the inside of the computer. Explaining how to do this is beyond the scope of this article. There are plenty of websites that can tell you how to do it. One must be careful, though, as static electricity can kill a computer. If you are not comfortable doing it, have it done professionally.

2...Get more memory. The days of high price memory are over. Run the following program to see what memory you have:
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
Get the standalone version.
Or go to websites like crucial.com or similar website. Buy as much memory as you can afford.
3...Make sure whatever internet connection box (cable modem, fios, dsl, whatever) that you are using is getting plenty of ventilation. When they overheat, they usually keep working, but slowly.

Cookies wont allow downloading a photo


in your browser window, find the Tools tab on the Menu option. Click on Tools, find Internet Properties at bottom and click on it. On the General Tab find the 'Delete Cookies' button and click it. This will delete your browser cookies if using Internet Explorer. Refresh browser(close and open again). If the photo will still not download it might be 'protected' by the original photographer or site you are downloading from. You cannot download items that are 'privately protected' by owner or web site.

Hi! You can try Deleting cookies:


How to Delete CookiesClearing cookies from your Web browser is simple and easy, and doing so could help protect your private data while you're online. Here's how to do it.

By Michael King, PCWorld Nov 3, 2011 3:00 am

Cookies are usually delectable delights, but Web cookies can sometimes be less than delightful. These little files hide in your computer so that your browser and websites can track your browsing sessions and save certain useful information, such as account names and passwords, for later retrieval. Although cookies may seem harmless overall, they can threaten your privacy if an attacker tries to use them maliciously.

Because of that threat, most modern browsers make cookie storage easy to understand and control. They also make it simple to remove individual website cookies, or even to delete cookies from your computer entirely. Here's how you can perform the latter task in some of the most popular browsers.
Delete Cookies in Google Chrome

1. If you're running Google Chrome version 14 or higher, click the wrench button in the upper-right corner of the Chrome window. From there, select Options.

2. In the navigation pane of the Options page, click Under the Hood.

3. Under the Privacy section, click Content Settings.

zoomicon.pngcontentsettings-5232058.pngClick the 'All cookies and site data' button in the Content Settings window.

4. Under the Cookies section, click All cookies and site data.

5. When the list of cookies appears, click the Remove All button to delete all cookies stored in Chrome.

Alternatively, you can navigate to the Cookies section of your Chrome browser and click the Remove All button to delete all cookies in one fell swoop.
Delete Cookies in Firefox

1. Make sure you're running the latest version of the Firefox browser, and then select the Firefoxmenu. From there, select Options and then Options again.

2. Click the Privacy tab to bring up your user-privacy options.

3. Under the History section, click the Remove Individual Cookies link.

zoomicon.pngcookieswindow-5232059.pngClick the Remove All Cookies button to zap them.

4. At the bottom of the Cookies window that appears, click the Remove All Cookies button to delete all cookies associated with your Firefox browser.
Delete Cookies in Safari

1. Confirm that you're running version 5 or later of Apple's Safari browser, and then click the Gears menu in the upper-right corner of the Safari window. From there, select Reset Safari.

zoomicon.pngresetsafariwindow-5232063.pngIn this window, check the bottom box, 'Remove all website data'.

2. Check the bottom box, labeled Remove all website data. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

3. Click the Reset button to eliminate all cookies associated with Safari.
Delete Cookies in Internet Explorer

1. Upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer. Select the Tools menu from the Internet Explorer window, and click Delete Browsing History.

2. In the Delete Browsing History window, check the box next to Cookies. You can uncheck everything else if you want to remove only cookies.

zoomicon.pngscreenshot2-5232067.pngFrom here you can choose which parts of your browsing history to erase.

3. Click Delete to remove all cookies stored in Internet Explorer.

Congratulations, you've successfully cleaned out your browser's cookie cabinet. Although cookie files pose a potential threat to privacy, don't forget that they can also improve your Web browsing by making it faster and more convenient.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

There is a program called ccleaner (yes double "c") available at download.com. It is very good at cleaning out cookies and temporary files. Ad-aware is also available there and will remove most tracking cookies and malware and is also free.

My wifes computer appears of line to all her contacts but she has not set it that way what can she do to correct this?


She is going to need to give her computer a complete cleaning job because messenger takes alot of available memory:

Update and run virus control

Go to toolbar>tools>internet options>general>and delete all cookies

go to Start>All programs>accessories>systems tools>disc cleanup and run that

How many little icons does she show in the lower right corner. These are programs that are always "on" running in the background and they take a lot of memory. I can tell you how to get rid of them if there are several unnecessary ones.

Clean up the desktop. Are there a bunch of icons for programs you rarely if ever use? right click on them and delete them. This does not delete the program and you can put them back anytime.

If you have a registry cleaning program, run that

Empty email trash

Empty the trash can

Do a defrag which can be found at the same place as the disc cleanup
Now restart your computer.

Turn off all running programs using the icons in the lower right corner. Be sure to turn off your virus/firewall control.

Uninstall messenger (Save any lists just by copying them to a new text file somewhere.)

Now leaving your proggys off, download and reinstall messenger. This is called a clean install. Restart your computer once more. Do not save abunch of history in messenger. It takes up tons of memory.

Good luck.

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


You will have to try to run a removal program on your system before trying to restore it since the bug is probably saved and will reinstall over and over again.
Worst case, you may have to buy an antivirus package or risk losing any or all of your own work.
You absolutely need to install the 'Restricted Sites' list (available at several sites on line) to avoid ending up at dangerous sites such as the one that installed your current problem.
Windows Defender is free (from MS website) and along with an antivirus program will afford you further protection.

Running 'naked' is not an option.

Reformat your hard drive. Sounds like you have too many programs installed to protect your computer. One of these computers may be some sort of spyware.

You only need one good antivirus software program with a firewall. You must subscribe to them every year in order to continue to get virus updates.
