  1. Hi, How does one go about getting completely rid of porn files and clean up computer? Regards, Marc
  2. Hi all with the suggestion of Rip: In regards to your Hard Drives, I recommend that you create a new topic in this forum, where one of the experts can better assist you on that issue. Because of an issue that he said: If you haven't had any malware issues before this, it's possible your just having issues with your hard drive(s). Can you see about posting a HijackThis log, and possibly a MalwareBytes Anti-Malware scan log, as well? It might be a wise idea to back up your data in the meantime, the backups can always be scanned by anti-virus software at a later date in time. All the malware removal tools resulted in being no malware present. A bit ago I had a: Warning Event Notification Inside the box it says: SMART has detected a problem with a Hard Disk Drive. 1. Back up your data immediately. 2. Contact your Help Desk or Dell Technical Support immediately. Never heard of this. Can someone help and guide me on what and how to deal with this? Marc

  4. Hi David. The problem I have is my cd drive is not working therefore I'm not able to insert a cd at my home pc. So for now I have to do this at work. What I want to do is to save the cd's as a mp3 file to my desk top at work. Then send the mp3 file to my email address at home. Then when I get home I can use my iPod and iTunes and therefore download the mp3's. My iPod is not configured at my work pc so I don't want to mess with it there. So what steps do I need to do? I thought that I did but the files were cds files. Marc

    CDA files?

    Hi all and Happy Thanksgiving to those that live the USA. I have a question. First there is something wrong with my cd drive at home so I'm not able to play cd's currently. I wanted to download some cd's so I did it at work. Saved them and sent an email to myself with attachements. At home on my pc I can't even play them, but at work I'm able to open them and play them. The files are cda files. I want to download the cd's to my iPod. For some reason I can't. Is it possilbe I need to convert the cda's to another format so I can download them to iTunes and then to my iPod? Need some help. Marc

  14. Hi folks, How do we know when there are new versions of Spybot, Spyware Blaster and Ad-Aware? Reason I ask is because although I would "update" Spybot and Spywarre Blaster I wasn't aware that there were new versions to download til it was brought to my attention. Thanks, Marc
  15. Hi folks I have MS AntiSW set to run at a certain time. Don't know if this has to do with the MS AS scan... When I get up and close the window it seems to close "slowly" almost and I say almost freezing. It closes very slow, the window. Then my pc seems to run slow for a bit. Then after a while my pc seems to start running better as I use it. Does this have to do with the MS AS scan? Marc
  16. After reading all this stuff about the Yahoo toolbar, which honestly I don't understand.... Should I switch back to the other version of CC that I had? Marc

    Issues Scan

    How about Spyblaster... What's it suppose to do? How does it work? I have it because it's part of CC's spyware removal guide. Why do we need so many programs? Marc

    Issues Scan

    Thanks! About CWShredder it doesn't seem to find anything. Ad-Aware will often find something and remove it(most likely from our kids surfing) which is OK with me as long as Ad-Aware finds it and removes it. What's the purpose of CWShredder does it work or is it a waste? Marc

    Issues Scan

    Hi all what is an Issues Scan? What does it actually do? I just ran one to see and didn't select to fix. Should we fix what CC finds? How will it help to maximize our pc's? Marc

    New PC?

    Hi incy, yes our pc does everything we want it to do. When our kids want to play games, not very often, that's when we sometimes run into issues; computer slow. I assume it's because the CD takes up alot of space. Someone told me when they want to play a game, again not often, just install the game and when they're done un-install it. When they get into a run of playing games it's kind of a pain to install and re-install; time consuming. But again mostly we all just use our pc to surf the web, check out different sites. I use it for my business. Often our kids like to play games, liten to audio on specific websites which are web-based games(don't have to download), etc. Possibly I can look into adding more memory. I believe that our pc might have more "space" without spending a ton of money on a new pc. What can we do to keep our pc maximized all the time? I do the suggested anti-spyware recommendations from this forum at least once/twice a week and run a disc defrag once a week. Marc
