Thanks so much for all of the help. I'll play around with my NEW computer over the weekend and let you how it's performing.

Question: Of ALL of the programs that i downloaded, can I now uninstall any of them? I like to only keep the most necessary of programs on my computer and if I can do without them, I'd like that. Which can I delete, which should I keep?

Thanks again for all of the help. This site and you guys are amazing.

Now if someone can help me clean up my laptop as well, that'd be :tazz:

Actually, there seems to be one last pop-up that is rearing it's ugly little head now.

A new window for http://www.affiliate...om/info2/2.html keeps opening up, periodically. Is this something that i can get rid by altering my newly downloaded programs or changing settings somewhere?

Essentially, you can get rid of all the programs that I had you download. Most people don't want them and they could be dangerous in the wrong hands.

As far as the new popup goes, try running Ad-Aware and if that doesn't take it out, please send me a new log and we go digging again.

I'll try it out. Thanks.

Hey, would these new settings alter what sites I can log onto? For some reason, I can't sign onto my MySpace account (LOL). Everytime I try, it just sends me to the register new account screen...

Just was curious if that may be because of my settings somewhere...

Yes in many ways.

Cookies that are considered spyware or tracking cookies were removed. That could be it.

Also if you ran IESpyads, there are a number of sites where you won't be able to go to. All these sites are known malware carriers.
