    The Google Chrome browser is creating problems for a lot of users, so you decide if you want to keep using it.

    Which version of Internet Explorer do you have? If you still have 6 or 7, you need to upgrade to 8.

    i tried to download IE 8 but it gives me error message that i don't even have time to read... it just flashes by so fast..i like chrome because it's much faster than IE. only after i changed GC to be primary home page, then all this started.

    With all the crap you have installed in that computer, and with all the programs that are auto-loading and running in the background that don't need to be doing so, I can see why you're having computer problems. :eek:

    LimeWire is in the mix, so it's my guess that computer is infested with spyware and malware. :eek:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

    Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click on the "Save List" button.

    Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere. It'll then open in Notepad.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

    Go back to that site using Internet Exolorer and right click on xp_fix_internetoptions.vbs and choose Save target as and save it to your desktop. Now double left click on that downloaded file.
