More pc problems

Discussion in 'Computing & Gaming Discussions' started by CPTN.CROWN, Dec 15, 2004.

  1. Well i had a guy come out and fix my machine. Cost me 100.00 but it seemed to be worth it. I kept having a problem with lop.com, and search 200. He was able to fix that.

    Now I cant add any web pages to my favorites. Im not sure if he changed something by accident. So I called em, they want another 100 to come check it out. They say we may have hit another mud puddle, and that is not there problem. Well we were out all weekend and didnt get online till last night. Then we rrealized that this was a problem. I dont really want to pay this guy to come back out!!! Anyone ever had this problem that might be able to help me fix my machine?

    Thanks

    Jason

    a quick google search on "lop" and "search 200" comes up with Spyware returns.

    you have spyware on your machine and must remove it. download/install/update Spybot Search and Destroy and ad-aware free version.
    there are countless spyware removal tools now available on the net. search for some free ones and use them.
    spysweeper
    spywareblaster
    Spybot Search and Destroy
    Ad-Aware
    etc
    etc.....

    try that one too.
    and start using Firefox webbrowser instead of IE.

    i'd save your $100 and try all these first. Good luck with that.

    you need to get all data backed up as I'll be wiping the drive clean and laying down a fresh install of XP and SP2. PM me when you're done.

  16. i dont know about you, but when i installed SP2 my comp hit the crapper . but once i went back and did a system resotre to september, my comp statrted working fine again. SP2 is bad news.

    loaaded sp2 on my daughter's desk top and my lap top no problem. loaded it on my desk top and it wouldn't let me open up my section of the computer but could open up other accounts deleted it and now mine works fine so going to keep sp2 off my desk top
     

  19. 3 other people i know had a problem with SP2. it made all our comps run slower, and wouldnt let us open the internet(we have sbc yahoo). but if it works for you, use it.
     
  20. Excuse my ignorance! What is SP2?:confused:
