spyware question

  1. How do you get rid of an annoying pop-up that comes on every time at sign-on? The site says that it was signed up for, but now there is no number to contact them to stop sending it. It's happening to a friend of mine, so I don't have real detailed info. :shame:

    Thanks!
     
  2. If it pops up at start up, it is possible that your friend go in to 'My computer' and edit her start up menu options, or delete the file/program from her computer using 'add/remove programs'

    What is the name of the program, do you know?:smile:
     
  3. go and download Spybot: Search & Destroy. It'll well, search and destroy all viruses and spyware on the system, and then it'll give like an immunity shot, to the computer to make it immune to spyware and viruses. very helpful. it's also recommended to run S&D every 2 weeks. :smile:
     
  4. I forwarded the info on, thank you so much!

    I think she said it's Movietones.com?
     
  5. I volunteer for a board called www.geekstogo.com

    We fix people's computers with just this type of problem for free.
     
  6. Wow, what a great site! Thanks!
