I am on broadband so computer is always on, and now finding that various websites keep displaying on my computer when it`s idle. IE. 888.com, purpleplanet.com, pokerland.com etec. I have downloaded various spyware progs and scanned my computer to no avail. Has anyone any suggestions how I can stop this before I do a reset to factory settings, having already done a system restore to a week previous. Many thanks Rob
Try running your spyware and Anti-Virus in safe mode,[Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts]Up-date them first ,If anything found delete and when finished running all your programs Run C Cleaner,Now you might be better turning off your System Restore before before you start,it will mean that you lose your restore points,If you would like to wait till someone else can give you anymore information,As I have to go out,The pub calls. best of luck.
Sorry .Lop.com puts different programs on your computer and tries to Hi-jack the home page, It used to add a lot of programs to your favorites and you could not get rid of them,If not that ,i would still run your Spyware + Anti-Virus programs in safe mode.
P3 I realise that my computer is not always on and obviously if I don`t put it on standby or hibernate then the computer will do. It`s when I am doing something else on the computer like reading emails or something and then a webpage pops up. I have been through the System Processes and deleted quite a lot of the exe files in there so hopefully that will solve the problem. I have also found a good website to find out all the process files and what they do etc at click here. So thanks for the links and the advice.
