    Default Get crazy notifications & messages

    Hello all.

    Ive have a few issues that are really annoying me.

    1) I can not get my paint program to turn off (i delete,con, alt) but otherwise i get the message "there is not enough memory or resources - close some programs".

    2) I can not get hte HP game console to open at all - I was told I may have a program running that is interfering with it.

    Not sure if 1 and 2 are related in anyway. Also not sure if this is even Windows related - but hoping someone here can help.

    3)... when I fill out my email addresses for websites I have my email saved with... I get the option of "manlovesboys".... !!!??? i am highly offended by this and have NO clue what this is or how it got on my computer. NO ONE uses this but me. Is this a virus????



    thanks for any help

    Looks like a virus. Scan with everything you have and SAS ( SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware! ).

    I ran the scan (thanks) and it did come up with one issue - but its from verizon and I just downloaded that program a few days ago. Im in the process of getting rid of it anyway... but i dont think thats it.

    is there anything else I can do????

    thanks...

    Do you still have a restore point from before that problem started? Run the restore wizard and see what it offers - you can always "cancel" before the restore starts (Finish) if it is not what you need.
    If you want to check with Command Prompt, go to All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt > Run as Administrator. Into the little black window type vssadmin list shadows. Look for all shadows (restore points) that are on C whether you can find a suitable one - they are dated.
    Else you can run more scanners, but look for the restore points first because with every download you will lose one earlier one.
    For the future, I suggest you image your system frequently. Then you can always reset it. Here is how: http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/wind...e-macrium.html

    Yeah i dont have any restore options before the problem. I just dealt with these issues for awhile (maybe a month or so) before coming here. Am I now in trouble???

    If I am getting this unwanted email address listed in my email options. Is this possibly some kind of dangerous virus - (private info being accessed)

    thanks

    Im going to try the shadow option now...

    Are you in trouble? - Hard to tell. It is definitely something that does not belong there. Follow the suggestions that leofelix made. We'll then have a look at the scan results.

    What does this do? I know i asked for help - but this makes me nervous because it says there is no warranty and if something happens to my computer 'oh well'.

    ---------- Post added at 10:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:50 PM ----------

    Now Im having problems with my mail. I can get my msn email to show up - but when i click on any email - nothing happens. I get an error message when i try my aol mail. This both happened yesterday - its firefox - but works fine with internet explorer......

    thanks
