I want to get better at understanding my computer and cleaning it from invasions from spyware and other nastiness from the evils of cyberspace.

I have a desire to learn, keep my PC healthy, and pass on the needed information to other novices who are experiencing problems with hostile hackings into computers.

I have a tremendous performance drop in my computer and a a small yellow shield that says updates are ready for your computer, click here to intall. It also says I must first sign end user agreement. I have run microsoft anti-spyware, trend microsystems, Macafee, Adware-se and nothing seems to make this logo go away.

When I start my computer, I am asked "allow or block cpqset.exe. I have been clicking on block.

Are others within the community expericing this problem?

Welcome to BC. Your slowdown may be caused by sypware; I suggest you post a HJT log for our volunteer team of experts to analyse, after which they will work with you to clean up anything it finds. Complete instructions can be found here:


Assuming you have a HP notebook, you can safely allow cpqset.exe to run, according to the BC Startup Database,found by looking at the top of this site's page.

In addition to help, BC offers a wealth of information, both in its Tutorials as well as in its technical forums, that will help arm you in defence of your computer.
Welcome to this great user community!
