To add to ccskw's comment: You will want to run Malewarebytes but you will also want to run Vipre Antivirus. Additionally, you want to run these two programs in Safe Mode. Follow given link to find instructions to boot in Safe Mode for each OS: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chsafe.htm . Once you are in SM, run both MB and Vipre (at the same time). The scans may take a few hours, so just let them work. Once scans are completed, you can read the report to see if anything was removed. Then, restart. Hopefully, your little, firey devil is toast.

Its not a virus its spyware, if you have windows defender installed give your system a thorough scan and make sure its updated first. If you dont have that program download it from here or you can choose from many other anti-spyware programs. Cheers and please vote

Can not get rid of alot home page and i canot install yahoo home page


Would be nice to know your operating system, but, here goes. The router doesn't keep the "home page" It's in your internet explorer. Open up internet explorer and go to Yahoo's home page you want to make as your new home-page. Click on the TOOLS tab at the top. Scroll down to INTERNET OPTIONS and the big block will open up. Since your already on Yahoo's page you want to save, just click on "Use Current" to save the present page. Next time you open up Internet Explorer, your page will pop up. Easier done than said I'll bet.

Trend Micro anti virus security updates


Down load the update. If you do not the signature file that is used will not reflect the latest virus's out there. It is not an advertisement.
If you are concerned about ads popping up Adblock (free on the internet ....eliminates a big bunch of them and requires you to do nothing). You might want to check that out. Also, since it appears you may not have read the Trend anti-virus information I encourage you to understand what it does and how you set it up properly. If it is similar to Avast or Avg (the two most popular free anti-virus programs) you need to specify what it is to check for.
This one learning exercise is EXTREMELY important...fail to do it and it is not a question of if....only when you will get zapped and zapped can mean everything goes away. Be careful....Tango
