    Hello j23carrillo,

    I am assuming you were told there was a virus in your email that got in perhaps? When you get your computer back, I suggest installing a good antivirus software first thing. A few good ones I can suggest are AVG Antivirus Free, avast! Free Antivirus 6, or Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus.

    Do you remember the passwords you used to log in to your email accounts? If a virus got into your computer from your email, you would need to open the infected message to become infected. If you believe your email accounts have been compromised, I would suggest forgetting about them and creating a new email address with your preferred email service.

You need to get a really good virus program which will detect the virus on your computer. You also get an malware program too for spyware. Viruses will effect everthying on your computer but before you get your computer fixed try this first.. I used Panda Cloud which is free and it is a really good program! Another good program for malware is IO Security 360. Do a deep scan after you install the virus program and malware program. Another good program for your computer is Advanced System Care 4 with is also free and it keeps your computer working really well and it cleans your computer of files you don't need. It also has tools that lets you know that you have founds and it fixes it.

How do I intercerpt a possible scam?

While it was stoopid of you to click any link in any "unsolicited" E-mail, unless you allowed the web-site to download a computer-virus to your computer, your computer is not infected -- it is not that "easy" to get infected.

Something goes through my address book and sends junk mail to eeveryone in my address book and it comes up with my name and e-mail address on it

There is no easy answer for this problem. You've downloaded malware that has highjacked your email address book. Your email provider will not be able to help. The best thing you can do is close the email account and start with a new one. Make sure to save your current address book so that you can reestablish it in your new email account. You need to make sure that you have a good virus/malware program running to detect unwanted access to your computer and applications.
If you need some recommendations on virus/malware detection software, let me know.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

My sister rec'd an email from my address that I did not send. did someone steal my email account and what should I do?

-the computer that you have has an infection, and what it is doing it is sending e-mails that has a link that would give computer infection or viruses.
-what you can do for starters is go to disk cleanup and clean some all of the temp folders
-make sure that the anti virus protection that you have is still active, and updated.

My computer wont load my facebook, or myspace homepage when i log in. my yahoo account wont load my mail box

This sounds very much like a virus infection. Do you have Anti-virus software? Is it up to date? If you are not familiar with de-infecting a computer, you should get assistance from someone who does, BestBuy, Staples, etc.

Good luck, Jim

My friends are receiving e-mails from my e-mail address with no subject and advertising sexual products and I am not sending these e-mails. Can you help me?

You need to get your mail host involved, and get their opinion. change the access password to your account. If this event happend with Hotmail, they have been being hacked successfully and apparently cannot do much about it.
Hotmail accounts that got hacked also may notice the deletion of the address book..

Also, anyone can put another return address on e-mail, but the clue about your friends may mean your account was hacked. Did all of your friends get mail of this type, then high odds of hack. Change your password.

Some of our email friends are receiving ads from an outside source through our email account. How do I fix that?

Scan your computer for any possible malware that may steal confidential information. Some infections cause your computer to send out unsolicited emails or some may steal your login information and use your account for spamming or other illegal stuff.
Change the password of your email account.

Hope this helps! :D

Can go on youtube?

This issue occurs if the Computer is infected by any virus. Scan the Computer by any good Anti-virus/Internet Security application (Kaspersky or ESET or Norton) to detect and remove the virus.

If you very familiar with the Computer then:

Open the Task Manager, close (End Task) any unknown/malicious process running in background under your User Account (like svchost running under your User account only not under SYSTEM or LOCAL SERVICE).

Then try opening YouTube.

I suggest that you better scan your full Computer with any good and updated AntiVirus application to resolve the issue.

If the AntiVirus application is unable to detect any virus in the Computer then try opening the YouTube in the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING to determine whether the Computer is infected with the virus.

If you are able to open the YouTube in the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING then the Computer is definitely infected with virus then reinstalling the Operating System is the only option to remove the virus from the Computer to resolve the issue.
