  1. Hello all

    Ive been checking one of my kids pcs as it was running slow. Just found its suffering badly from pop ups that seem to have come from an install that was allowed to include "additional services".

    Ive done all the usual by uninstalling obvious programs and also turning up security etc. But the pop ups still keep comming.

    Really appreciate any help you can give.

    Thanks all

    Well for your info (and education) a cbr1100xx is a big motorcycle otherwise know as a Honda Blackbird. I ride a cbr1100xx06. Does that answer your question?

    And if i have to explain what kids do to pcs then obviously youve never parented before!!

    The software she loaded was the dreaded MS messenger, and tbh I'm not far from formating it.

    By the way your lame question has reminded me why I dont like forums always has some **** who thinks he knows the world.

    noting is wrong with a little curiosity, all you do is answer it formally and thats all to it.

    I would hate to help someone that surf porn sites and got themselves infected by dozen of spy wares, hence i ask those questions.

    My question aren't insulting either, i don't understand why you find it offensive. Since now I know that cbr1100xx is a Honda name i get to know you better. You see communication is key here, but since you don't understand me and my intention. Gl with your answer, and your problem could easily can be answer if you did some research call Googling?
