Still, Youtube needs about minute and a half to two minutes to buffer one minute of 360p or 480p.

I can't stand it anymore.

John, MS doesn't do that, that's a fake A/V.

You may already be infected even if you didn't click on the fake scan.

Run a full Malwarebytes scan in Safe Mode if necessary.

If that fails download, write to flash stick or Burn to CD and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Hiyya Gary thanks mate I am now concerned cos it was on a Windows site - http://shell.windows.com/fileassoc/*****/***** and when I tried it again no such site came up it came up with another ref to "sponsored sites" that did not include that scanner.

Thanks Greg I have MBAM on already and Comodo Premium but I will do that sweeper as I just posted to Gary the sites have now changed.

My concern is that Windows File Association has been infiltrated.

It looks like someone has poisoned the site or used a redirect. I get a "504 Bad Gateway" message.
MalwareBytes has no active protection unless you've paid for the Pro version and Comodo is a firewall which wouldn't stop it. I use MS Security Essentials if using a machine temporarily. Link in my sig mate.

Comodo also has a security suite, which I suspect is what he has. A Guy

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
