New to this here site. Came across it while trying to find online advice on how to fix some computer-related complications that i've recently been subjected to. Site says make an introduction, so here i am.
Name's Jason i'm turnin' 22 this year. I'm not computer illiterate, but i struggle with maintaining my computer's stability... (stupid pests, viruses and the like).
My most recently dilemma came from (i believe) a game i downloaded off of kazaa called Blasterball. There was pest warning prior to installation which i regrettably ignored. Now my system is suffering from constant pop-up "blooping" or beeping noises, strange icons that pop up on my desktop (free ringtones, mp3s, adult finder, etc), a favourites list that cannot be modified in any way and a toolbar that is annoying to get rid of.
Anyways, whilst searching up methods of removal, i stumbled upon a HijackThis referral and followed the instructions to remove a seemingly similar pest. It worked for about 20 minutes and then all the icons and favourites and toolbars came back!
That is why i am here now, throwing myself at the mercy of those more competant than i and sincerely hoping that at least one of you will empathize with me.
Please and thank you.
