Can anyone halp me? I have a browser redirect problem; a virus or a trojan. I delete it and it keeps coming back. When I click on a link, it changes the link to thefeedonline dot com and redirects to a completely random ad site. I deleted it and it came back twice. Maybe I need to buy MacAfee again. <_<

Try AVG - it's free and pretty good.

I had such a bad Trojan once that I took my computer to a PC store, they deleted it and maximised my system so that it ran faster than before.

Antivirus programs actually aren't so great for removing infections once they've hit, they're more for a preventative measure.

I would follow these instructions to get your system clean. (And I would never recommend that any home user PAY for antivirus software, like *Lucy* mentioned, there are ALL SORTS of great free programs out there.)

I agree totally!

There also might be a specific way to remove that virus I would search the term "Viris" and the website name that it directs you to. I have found this to be helpful in the past.

I agree with what everyone else. AVG is quite good, although not amazing - the free version will protect you against a lot of things that MacAfee won't.

It's true about the anti-virus programs being more of a preventive thing, so when you actually have a virus, you might need a specific virus removal kit to get rid of it which (as Thunderpeel said) are usually found by googleing the name of your virus.

If all else fails, try this website (the forum in particular): it's full of white-hats who spend their days fighting viruses and trojans, etc.

i 3rd (or 4rd?) getting the AVG.

i got lots of tools on my computer. everything was free to.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware might be worth a try? i know theres a thing in it to delete the undeleteable (or so it seems)

i like EasyCleaner. also free. < this isn't for getting rid of viruses per-say. but just more of a cleanup thing.

no matter what you do tho, you gotta be careful with what you delete and all. if it has been suggested to you to delete something and you don't know what it is. find out what it is. google it up and see beforehand. <!

Conventionally, help is hotkey'ed to the F1 function key. I can't recall for sure, but I would be surprised if Office 2007 abandoned this convention.

There's also this video which shows how to enable/disable the classic menu system in Office 2007, which may help.

it turns out to be this little ? in the corner of the screen. when you're looking for the word "Help" that is not useful AT ALL.
F1 still works, for the record.

What is the best way to get rid of tough stains? I have rust and blood stains on my beautiful white shirt. I've tried washing it with bleach and scrubbing it with Castille soap so far...

Thankies. :) I am going to use salt and lemon juice.

If that doesn't work, I'll dye it another color so the rust doesn't show.
