    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do to Babylon Hi Starbuck, The malware problem has been solved:) The no sound problem hasn't. I have two new postings. The sound problem is under 'Hardware Issues', although I think it should be somewhere under software. The sound icon has now disappeared from the system tray so things...

    Best Specs for Streaming

    Hi, Needless to say my troublesome computer will soon be on Ebay and a new notebook will be in the post very soon. I'm looking for a new notebook that can handle streaming. What specs are going to give best performance, i.e., what hard drive rpm should I have, and what difference does the...

    No Sound on My Notebook.

    No Sound on My Notebook Update, Ref, the above. I just messed around with Windows Media Centre that stated that my tuner was not found. I went into my programs and could not find any media players. There is Windows Live Essentials but I don't think that has much to do with the problem...

    No Sound on My Notebook.

    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do to Babylon Hi Starbuck, I can't remember if I did the Esets scan. Would the report have been just a few lines long. Was it that that found the Yontoo? The good news about my sound problem is that I have an x next to the speaker, so this time it's probably a software problem and...

    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do to Babylon Hi Starbuck, Yes, I must have been online when I connected to the link for AdwCleaner but I can't remember what else, if anything, was open at the same time. I'm not a particularly adventurous surfer so it's highly unlikely that I had anything risky open in the background...

    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do to Babylon Hi Starbuck, Yes I am saying AdwCleaner installed Babylon onto my computer, or something in the link. I clicked the link and I saw three arrows shoot down to point to three downloads on the bottom left of my screen. I clicked on the first which came up as some kind of...

    V.P.N. (proxy server)

    VPN Hi pc49, Sorry for such a late posting but I've been sorting out a malware problem. There are two UK VPN services which rate and perform well, but they are not free though they have very good packages: Overplay.net and HideMyAss. You can subscribe for just one month if you want to...

    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do malware Hi Starbuck, I'm not sure what I should have done. I deleted Firefox so I had to use the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles option which worked fine, but then what should I have done? Do I systematically delete everything or just what I don't want which is only snap.do, where...

    Snap.do Malware.

    Snap.do malware Hi Starbuck, I'd deleted Fox before I did the OTL. When the Snap.do domain came back with it, I did another OTL process but the snap.do was still there, so I deleted it again. At least that's what I think I did, it was quite late when I did it. I'd like to re-install Google...
