I am trying to get to an anti spyware website to download the spy ware to check my computer i can not get to the site although my main computer i can get to it, so i know it is up and working.


You likely have spyware which is blocking your ability to connect to a site that will help you remove it. A lot of todays Spyware and Malware is programmed to identify and block your attempts to remove it. Try downloading Microsoft's Security Essentials (free) or other free Spyware Removal program onto your main computer and saving it to a CDROM, Flash Drive or other media you can use to install and run the application on your infected PC. DO NOT DO A SYSTEM RESTORE. If the malware is blocking your ability to remove it, A system restore will likely not have any effect. Once you have been able to execute a removal software on your computer and have eliminated the threats, then only do a system restore if you have a restore point that you are certain is prior to when the infection occured.

I can access everything on this computer including internet, you tube, my husband can access his yahoo email, my daughter can aces her ahoo email, and I can notaccess mine. It keeps telling me that I...


Is everyone using the same user account to check their email or does your dusband and daughter have their own user account as well as yourself?

If everyone is seperate, then you may have inadvertantly gotten a piece of spyware that is messing with your settings. The quick solution would be to create a new user account for yourself and copy your documents over. The not so quick fix would be running a program like HijackThis to see if there are any web browser redirects or "hijacks" for yahoo. Also running some antispyware utilities such as Spybot Search & Destroy. I recomend Spybot because it identifies some hijacks, offers protection (not realtime scanning, just prevantative), works great, and is legally free. You could also use another web browser such as Mozilla Firefox which helps prevent hijacking and spyware infections. This is also legally free.

Hope this helps!

If everyone is under the same account then I don't think the problem would make sense one person can access Yahoo mail but not another person.

I have a toshiba satellite a-210 laptop only 8 months but it has become very slow to respond to mouse clicks. I am afraid I have a virus


You probably have spyware, especially if you surf the net a lot.

Download Ad-Aware from http://lavasoft.com/

also try spyware doctor: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/?ref=afl_nenextech

Ad-Aware is a great program for scanning and removing spyware and is free. Spyware Doctor removes more spyware, but cost money for the full version. The free version will scan, but won't remove much without you paying for it. It is a very good program though, and the free program will tell you if you have infections.

High speed internet


Yes. There are also free Spyware detectors. Spyware is worse than a virus.
Do the following steps.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer (http://www.download.com/Free-Internet-Window-Washer/3000-2144_4-10436825.html?cdlPid=10731707). This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else. Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please rate me if it helps.

I have a computer and I got a spyware in my sistem and I ned fix a window xp home agen but I dont have any CD program


if you are infected with spyware you have 2 options

1. you buy an antispyware software and you scan your Pc
make shure you dont scan your pc with one of those free ones on the internet, they offer free fixes but youre really getting more spyware. But you will not be 100 % clean you will still have spyware even if you scan your system 100 times.
this is with any antispyware or antivirus.

2. you erase everything and by everything i mean windows.

if youre pc is a hp , compaq you may have a restore partition.


if its a generic youll need to buy xp or vista


Dont try to do this yourself , take it to some one who knows what their doing , like geek squad for example.

Computer Freezes when connected to internet.


The first step is to verify that you are not infected with a spyware or virus infection. The fact that you are only having freezing problems when you are connected to the internet is a sign that you may have some kind of infection.

The Geek Squad website has links to free online virus and spyware scanners that can tell you if you're infected.

http://www.geeksquad.com/tools/detail.aspx?id=377

If those scans come up as clean could you please post a Hijackthis log file so we can look at what processes you have running?

Ads keep popping up when am online and offline, I have warning tabs saying that I have been infected with spyware. I am on verizon fios network and have virus scan and spyware removal tools that I used,...


Hello there.

Virus and spyware problems are very popular unfortunately, most tools are unable to find and repair all problems, so its best to try alternative methods to remove the most stubbern infections.

I suggest using an online scanner, something like http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/housecall . Open this address and click "Launch Housecall free scan". This will download the files needed through your web browser and run a scan without actually installing the antivirus package in windows. It wont interfere with existing antivirus / antispyware software.

If you cannot remove all infections, then please show us a screenshot or a list of the infections from the scan end page and we will assist.

Hope this helps.

you should have ordered McAfee for that... It's protects you from everything... If not backup your files or write them on a CD/DVD. Then reinstall your computer and you'll have a clean computer then install all softwares that you need and your anti-virus, anti-popups and firewalls.

goodluck.
