Default Computer Trouble on Stak?? Or Mine?

Is it my computer doing nutty things or has the Stak changed a little ,this thing downloaded 8.0 something from windows ,now I am getting flashing stuff besides posts, if I posted anything, and now all I get going to engine ads is the title at top and blank yellow page, plus the pictures are not coming up right..... I do have dial up, so if you all changed something on here PLEASE put it back, or tell me what to do , or this thing is going to get a BFMH soon then trashed canned, Sorry about ranting but this started yesterday and I have cleaned things up, norton scanned it, and windows is now downloading updates ,really getting frustrated over this.......

Rich try going to restore to an earlier date. That has fixed mine when some update was added. As far as I know everything on enginads is the same. Don't ask me how to get there, I can do it but it takes me a while to remember how to.
I also think you will have to put all your passwords back in.

Rich---In "Search", just type in "System Restore". That will bring it up. Then restore to an earlier date, a few days earlier, when computer was working OK. If the first date doesn't work, try another date. Al

Exclamation Re: Computer Trouble on Stak?? Or Mine?

Do the system restore, if possible, a week before the event started. It may no longer be seen, but may still be in your system and doing damage. The fact that pop ups are showing up means that what ever it is, it is still affecting your system. It may be a hassle to have to re-enter or change passwords, but it will save you a lot of grief later. Speaking from experiance!

Rich,
Download the free version of Malwarebytes. You'll be surprised what that program will find on your machine.
