Viruses are not easily removed and most people do not realize that most malware/viruses tend to install what are called root kits. These root kits attach themselves to the processor software and are usually undetectable by virus scanners. HEre is how to check for a root kit.
1. Download Combofix and save it to your Desktop (Download Here) 2. The next this you need to do is disable your Anti-Virus Program. You can do this by right clicking on the icon on the Windows Taskbar and choosing exit or disable protection. 3. Run Combo fix. If it asks you to download some Windows Tools, click on yes. 4. Sit back and let it run...It might take a while.

How do get access to my Yahoo account even after it keeps saying go to "W********* nd still not letting me access my account

If you go directly to the Yahoo login page here:
Yahoo login
then entering your email and password should take you straight to your email account. (copy and paste the link to your favourites so you can go straight to it in your browser).
If you still get the "run around" to other sites you have some form of virus, adware or malware on your computer which needs to be removed as soon as possible.
Some can be removed by going through your browser settings and removing the search engines and add-ons that appear and that you do not want. Others require a removal from the Control Panel "Uninstall a programme" section. Others may require an anti-virus programme and scan of the computer to remove the threat. If you don't already have anti-virus, try AVG free anti-virus 2015.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

I have malware in my system how do you get rid of it? I have McAfee protection

Won't McAfee do it? Update it, run the scan, and there should be a results tab with a removal option there.

Failing that, disable McAfee, download and run MalwareBytes Free , and do as above.

Google search redirects me to another do I fix this?

That's a classic sign of a virus and or spyware.They redirect you to a site they control and try to get you to buy their virus protection.Reboot in "safe mode" and run your virus and spyware software.Make sure it's the deep scan so it clears your Restore files too.Also check your User Accounts for a "new" administrator.The virus will log on as administrator and control your computer so you can't delete the virus files.Let me know if this helps?

Running windows XP with AVG 8.5 antivirus cannot get acess to yahoo email account been like this for a week now. I can use my smart phone thur classic yahoo and get to it not with my home PC .

Run Spybot Search and Destroy. then Malwarebytes. Remove whatever comes up. then restart.

Malware- FREE

Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 -FREE SPYWARE

Go to, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.

If you have anything, remove them. Helpful Free Software below Read On.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Avira AntiVir – Free Anti-Virus Protection

FROM MICROSOFT 2009 -Free --Security Essentials

Pop up Blocker- free

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there-ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.


Good Luck.

Internet exploer closes after I sign in to Yahoo on windows vista

Yes, you are infected. Go to and download spybot search and destroy the current version.

Go through the thing carefully. If you need a detailed explanation on how to configure it to clean out the system, because it will need to be configured properly, then it can get out the infection.

If it can't, there is another way, but this is the easy way.

Yahoo search takes me to other sites

Remove yahoo search using add-remove programs. ITs junk anyways and gives you more pop ups anyways. just use the regular yahoo or add the home page as an extra home page so it open to it when you open explorer. ( IE7 + 8) allows multiple Home pages.

Just like google, yahoo tool bar is added clutter.

If you want it though, just remove it like I said and try re-installing it.
