First thing I need to say is I am the computer idiot that support hates.I am really dumb on this thing.Everytime I open up the internet it goes crazy and wont stop opening.I have tried running my spy thing,and my anti virus that comes with bell sympatico wont start I have put the user and password in it says it is connecting then it says it is downloading then it still wont work.Does anyone have any advice,I realize I am bad at this but my 14 year old can read the advice and do what needs to be done.My internet provider wont even talk to me they tell me to get Cody to call cause I shake so much and I take 20 minutes to get through the simplest thing.

Just get Cody to call, maybe you could put it on speaker or something so you can hear and respond to what he can't respond to. I'm clueless. Is it just IE or does any window open that many times?

You have spyware out the wazoo sounds like. You need to download some anti-spyware programs that you can run with being connected to the internet. Get Cody(your son? daughter?) to download Microsoft's AntiSpyware product and run it without connecting to the internet, if he can.

Go to www.trendmicro.com and do their free House Calls Scan. Do the complete scan as it will check for virus' and spyware.

Thanks hun.But if you had any idea how many times I have crashed,deleted main programs.My son Cody has locked me out as the administrater.Cody has had to reinstall the dell disks,windows xp probably 10 times easy.Do not allow people with brain injuries to touch your computer.Cody just says Mom quit touching stuff.I am the nightmare service techs prey dont call them. I had 79 spyware I guess I have been collecting them.Thanks everyone my computer has been so slow.

Well, I'm certainly glad you have him there to help out, I'm sure it makes him feel very smart and needed!

Yes Cody is well known because he finds the newbies and shows them how to play the online game.Cody is also the one that will take out a whole squad if they are cheating or making other kids feel bad.He is a great kid.
