I would be most appreciative of some help. I am having problems with weird pop ups telling me I have some sort of virus, yellow alert icons and my set-home web page keeps being changed to www.guarduptodate.com. I have run all of my spyware/adware/protection tools and nothing seems to be able to correct this matter. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. :whistling:

Hi Mirage1224! Welcome to G2G!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

Thank you so very much. I will do that. Since it is getting a bit late and I've been frustrated with this whole thing for the last 48 hours, I'm going to catch some sleep and start fresh tomorrow with your suggestions.

Again, thank you for your kind replay and the warm welcome.

Thank you for your kind reply. I am posting this message (or one like it) in another forum to thank them for their reply also. After looking over your direcitons, it appears I will have to invest a healthy amount of money just to buy the programs to scan my computer. After figuring this out, I decided it would be quicker and cheaper to just hire someone to come to my home and repair my computer. Thank you again for your time and consideration.

???? The programs on that page are FREE to use. Some have trial periods, but are FULLY FUNCTIONAL and will do just fine for cleaning out your machine at this time. Also, the people in the Malware Forum don't charge you for the service they provide.

I would DEFINITELY reconsider paying someone to fix up your computer when you can get it done for basically nothing, the only investment on your part is time.
