Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a bogus security software on my PC that says I have threats and the only way to remove them is to pay them $79.00. The software will not let me uninstall it and it won't let me use most of my programs or most of my sites on the internet. How can I get rid of this software?

It will be pretty hard to get rid of it.
1. Get Microsoft Security Essentials, it's free, install it and scan your computer to clean it from all the threats.
2. If it will not let you install anything, which most of these programs are doing, try to go into safe mode by pressing F8 and uninstall it or remove the file from Program Files so it wouldn't start again.

Just received an email about the Homeland Security to be aware of the UPS drivers. Is this true?


Hi Mary. It's bogus. See, for instance:

Homeland Security Threat involving bogus UPS drivers isn authentic or
Uniform Behavior


FWIW, I have found www.snopes.com to be a good reputable site for checking online rumors and stories. They do a pretty good job of dispassionately checking stuff and noting if there are elements of truth, or use of true-but-irrelevant info-bits to make a rumor seem plausible.

Us.data.toolbar.yahoo.com:443 invalid security cirtificate iwant valid security cirtificate


Unless you set your browser up for high security, this certificate is bogus. Rarely does a security certificate notice appear on yahoo without having set your browser up for high security.
Lower your security if it set to high and see if the message disappears. If your browser security is set to normal, then this is a bogus certificate for a bogus yahoo site.
