My Computer's Being Evil

My Computer's Being Evil

Hello.
[/font]
I think my computer has a virus. I have Norton Anti-Virus, I downloaded SpyBot, and AdAware, and scanned and deleted anything I found, but it's still being crap. Really slow. It may have something to do with the way it highlights certain words making them 'sponsored links'. For example, when Bonnie referred to a 'pampered pussy' the other day, it made a link out of one of those words. Clue: it wasn't pampered.

Other favourites seem to be internet, shows, books - that sort of thing.

Anyway, it's being really bloody annoying and I need to know what to do.

Are you the only one using the computer Scooby? Be a bit embarrassing when one of your parents decides to have a surf lol!

Im sure Blink will have a solution. Maybe check in Add/Remove programmes for anything weird?

I hope nothing Ive ever posted has been highlighted!

Maybe you could run a competiton. Guess the poster who uses the most naughty highlighted words lol. Im sure Groucho would be a strong contestant. Ha ha.

Christ - the plot thickens.

I'm using my sister's account on my computer and it's being absolutely fine and dandy.

Sounds very dodgy to me Scoobs, but I have no idea what it is, or what you can do about it!


Not much help, am I? :ohmy:

It would appear something is running in the program under your profile, that is unwanted.

Click on the "Start" button and go to "Run". Type in "msconfig".

This is the Windows configuration utility. You should have a tab at the top called "Startup". If you click this option, it will give you a list of programs that are automatically being loaded into memory when you start your PC. If there are unnecessary ones (and there will probably be quite a few), uncheck the box next to them and they won't be loaded next time. If anything you actually WANT fails to load, you can always load the utility again and just recheck the box.

When you start Windows the next time, you will get a message saying that msconfig is now starting every time you start Windows as you have chosen selective startup mode. When you are satisfied that Windows is loading to your satisfaction, you can check the box when this message comes up and you won't see it again.

This works on Windows XP but I don't know what other versions of Windows do; however I am sure that msconfig is on older versions as well.

No msconfig on Win2000, but there is a utility that works in a similar way if you have that op systems Scooby.

Good idea Ceridwen. However, when you look at your startup progs in msconfig Scoobs, some of them may be totally unrecognisable, but they might be pretty important. Others are a waste of space. Knowing which is which can be tricky, so I'd post a list or have a word with someone like Blink before trying this.

You could also try using Disk Cleanup to get rid of unnecessary files, followed by a good defrag!!
