  • tomlebon Jul 16, 2008

    I had the same issue on my son's pc after he downloaded software sorry i dont know where. After much wasted time and effort, I tried everything to get rid of the offending Cid but my final solution was to cut and paste as many files to an external drive, dont backup cause the Cid **** appears when you use the backup, after pasting the final file wipe your drives and re-install your operating system. You could try your anti-virus but it doesn't get rid of Cid, have you noticed the annoying pop-ups yet? Re-install is the only way. Regards tom.

Tip

Fake security warning !!!


When you are browsing the internet and suddenly a window pop up with different messages for example" free update for your computer ","scan your computer with free antivirus". May be some pop-ups messages helpful for you but you should read first in detail before clicking it. Pop-ups basically an advertiser message or unwanted program and website that might be disturb your computer performance.
If you are working with Internet Explorer and want to block the pop-ups windows and unwanted messages. Open the Internet Explorer and click on Tools menu and go to Pop-up Blocker option, here you can Turn Off Pop-up Blocker to block pop-up from all websites. But you have option to allow some websites for pop-up. For this purpose open the Pop-up Blocker Setting. Here you can add some specific websites name to allow for pop-up and click Add. If you feel any problem to block any pop-up message due to some problem, simply click on the X at the right top of the pop-up windows.

Computer freezes up after loading personal settings . C.annot find start up module pops up. Acrobat reader pops up with folders on screen. If all these pop up and I close them then loading continues and...


It seems the acrobat application is creating these problems. Please use the system configuration utility to remove this application from startup.

Click on Start >Run (If you have Windows 7 then type msconfig in search)and then type msconfig. In the msconfig window, under the startup tab, look for any entry which says Adobe and uncheck it. Click on Apply and OK and restart the system. This should do the trick.
