I am a computer illiterate about software spyware all that good stuff. I have in the past always been bombarded with the about:blank page..now it is uncontrollable it seems..Furthermore i cant open any of my desktop icons (kodak software my main disappointment) when im on the internet without getting program not responding messages..i get IE not responding and sometimes i can only shut down the system by pressing the power button... it freezes.. I also get the SysFader error message. ..At times i am overwhelmed with pop ups since this started happening..my system just keeps freezing and starting up way slow. Please help this pc illliterate broke grad student that desperately needs laptop to be working like the good ole days without paying somebody to fix whtever this problem is. Thanks in advance..my gratitude for any help (please in layman's terms) will be beyond words.
