What browser are you using? Have you checked your add-ons / extensions to see if there is something you didn't intentionally install?

I found both Yontoo and White Smoke (from Conduit) in IE and disabled it, which I don't even use. I find White Smoke in FF and disabled, then removed it.

I may not have noticed it and accidentally downloaded some such nonsense. I noticed it because my CPU was at 100%, so I had a look at Windows Task Manager to see what was using all that CPU.
Can you system restore to the point before the problem?

I don't have time right now. I think I have enough temporary fixes going to get me to the end of tax season. The printer is working now.

Did you go to your Control Panel, then uninstall program? I find that I have to keep a sharp eye out for Google Chrome. There is always a box that is already checked to install it when I get a new download from Windows. I make sure I uncheck it.

Yeah, I checked the control panel. It isn't there. I checked on line and people say it doesn't show up there.

Every six months I have to be evaluated according to the rules and regulations of Medicare. If that doesn't happen, then ESP doesn't get paid. I also have to have my vitals checked once a month. I am in my six month tiime. What a pain in the backside. But considering what I get in exchange I have to put up with it. And then I also get a notice in the mail that it is time for my recertification for housing. Why can't they all just leave me alone? I hate all these rules and regulations.

My SIL took my daughter to Florida for a few days to get her calmed down after all the hoopla from the Marathon Bombers. She gets upset very easily and over reacts to everything that happens when she can't control her world around her. In the meantime while she is gone, her meds came via UPS. The package is sitting here in full view and a constant reminder. All I ever wanted was a quiet retirement.

Please God, turn me into an Iguana.

I use chrome and it doesn't show up in extensions, there is no program that I can uninstall either.

I'm not too worried about it, I'm going to put a new hard drive in the laptop and start over again (the previous new HD crashed after a few weeks, I have a replacement, but haven't taken the time to put it in). I've been too lazy to put in the new hard drive, because setting up the whole computer again is a task. I just got a new phone a couple weeks ago and finally have all the apps that I need.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Keep plenty of duct tape and glue handy!

I use Ad-Aware to keep an electronic eye out for stuff I don't want to install. I use the free version. http://www.lavasoft.com/
