Annoying screen problems

  Sirpad 17:14 29 Jun 2007

I have two problems:

1. I cannot get rid of the Games Toolbar. Even if I right-click-and-uncheck it, it comes back when I re-open IE.

2. When I play certain on-line games I lose half of the game screen. Am not sure of the technical term but the game comes up as a window within the site's webpage. Most of the game requires you to use the UP arrow. Well the UP arrow brings the window down and I can only see the top 2 thirds of it. Is there a way to stop the page scrolling up and down. I know, I know...minor problem in the scale of things but this happens with lots of games that my kids play too.

What games toolbar? Sounds as though you've picked up some adware or something. Run scans with all the usual apps - Adaware, Spybot, Windows Defender, A Squared, Superantispyware and your AV software. That should shift whatever's put that toolbar on to IE - I'm assuming you're using IE. Also consider using Firefox instead, it's less vulnerable to something like that installing itself.

If it is in add remove,Delete it.Or try msconfig and if it's in there untick it.
