I recently had my main desktop go dead on me and was given a nine year old machine by a friend so I could at least get back on the internet do e-mail etc.. I have health problems so am happy to get it. I installed WinXP Pro and purchased software called Driver Pro  witch seemed to be worth the price. I then installed Audacity and started learning how to use it. I decided to go out for a while. When I got  home I booted the machine and was mildly surprised to be faced with a full screen ad for "Speed Up My PC" it wasn't long before it had decided to scan my computer and present the evidence of how badly I needed to buy and run "Speed Up My PC".  There was a button labeled exit witch closed the program. I don't remember the sequence of things I tried but things rapidly got worse. I went to Control Panel/Add Remove Programs and that is about the time that I first connected "Speed Up My PC" with "YonToo, llc"  but I have to get some sleep It is nearly 2 am.


Good morning,  my computer seems to have survived a few hours of Sleep Mode. At the hight of the strugle last night I was mostly having freeze up's. I had spent about 4 hours installing windows and some old favorites before I went out.  I'm running IE 8 and Google Chrome with Chrome set as the Default. I'm not sure if this is part of the problem or a red herring but I noticed a bunch of changes had been made to Chrome by some thing called "SweetPacks" I found uninstall instructions that listed about 12-15 changes to Chromes Settings and Extensions. Since undoing the changes in Chrome my computer has settled down. Of course I don't believe I've seen the end of YonToo. 


My Computer is an HP Pavilion a620n with AMD 3200+ cpu, max system ram of 1 gig, Sparkle AGP graphics card with 512 mb., 160 gB SATA HDD, 40 gB SATA HDD 750 gB Western Digital external drive and Creative X-fi sound card. Internet connection thru Comcast cable modem. 


Thank you for any help you can give me.

It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you.
