Hi, and thanks right off. Well I'm hit. I'm just now trying to figure a direction. First, (and I don't know if it's related)I got a pop-up window to update Adobe flash player. I just kept closing it, and it kept coming back. (I use foxit reader anyway)(I do use Firefox Btw).I did finally let it load after a day of trouble anyway thinking it might be some sort of patch for something they caused. I "accepted". Idk if I gave them my firstborn child, or my favorite piece of anatomy or what, anyway the following issues with loading it got confusing and it was late and i just gave up.(but the adobe pop-ups stopped)
Then I started getting all sorts of "re-directs" I guess it's called. "google heads" was in there...my free Spyware Terminator shows where/who it clambering around there...so adds come up, some won't close until you click a box "yes,I'm sure". Defiantly gives one the feeling someone is right there! (not that they aren't anyway)
So I do know a bit. I partitioned my drive on setup, I put C(& the OS) on a smaller piece, then all my drivers and programs and such on another. I still have a big chunk I didn't even format. (some programs and drivers insisted on going on C)
So my first "counter punch" was to go to windows firewall. Access is denied! Thought I might start by asking here. I could just wipe it and start over..I'm in the stix though with a slow cell modem, and this thing has something like 9 drivers. It hit July forth...any thoughts ? THANKS! Don.
