    My friend tells me I have a trojan horse but I'm not sure. The main problem is that the screen would go black, then it would return to normal. Unless I'm playing a certain game that always crashes my computer, then it wouldnt go back to normal unless I hold down the power button and turn it off. When I do that it turns on slower than usual. I looked this up and it told me to do something on my computer (I cant really remember, im not that good with computers), so now it happens much less, it only ever happens when I'm playing games (i play roblox, so it isnt anything major). Never when I'm browsing the internet or watching videos. Whats going on, I really hope it isnt a trojan. Also I rarely get pop ups, and when I do its when I'm on the internet and while I'm doing something, google chrome, in the background, something in there would take me to a site which would either be blocked by my anti virus system or something telling me ive won a free apple product.I always close chrome completely when that happens.

  • How to remove all the sexual ads I get in websites?

    Best answer: A few different things you could try:

    1. Clear your history, cache, and cookies within your Web Browser.

    2. If you're doing searches on Google while logged into your Google account. Go to history.google.com and clear your search history and activity.

    3. Download a browser plugin called "Canvas Defender". With that, you can change your canvas fingerprint. Some websites/advertising platforms grab this unique canvas fingerprint (basically just a code from your Web Browser) to share and track information about you and your preferences/likes.

    4. I'm guessing that your IP address is most likely not the issue.. that would be messed up because everyone in the house would be sharing the same ads. But if you really want to change the IP address, verify your current IP by going to whatismyip.com, and then try unplugging your modem and plugging it back in, and it should give you a new IP address. However, if you don't, then that means your ISP is giving you a static IP address. You could just give them a call though, and they'll change it for you.

    P.S. - I seen some others mention using adblocker. Although it's great to have (I have have it myself), I can tell you that it does not work for surveys.

  • Is it possible to infect a system by inserting a USB flash drive to a computer?

    If somebody gives me a USB flash drive so I can copy some of its files onto my computer, is it possible for the flash drive to have some auto-run files that activate as soon as I insert it into my computer and infect my computer?

  • Can someone "hack" my pc just by using my IP address?

    Best answer: It is possible if you clicked on links that you were sent. Not much can be done with just an IP. You can search approximate location (like a 70 mile radius). The most someone can do to you is DDOS you, which costs a lot of money and a single person would be hard pressed to keep your internet down for more than 10... show more
    Best answer: It is possible if you clicked on links that you were sent. Not much can be done with just an IP. You can search approximate location (like a 70 mile radius). The most someone can do to you is DDOS you, which costs a lot of money and a single person would be hard pressed to keep your internet down for more than 10 minutes at a time. Besides that, an ip address is really worthless.

    Hey guys, so today I received what I now think is a phishing email on my school email account. I accidentally clicked on the link because my school sends periodic verification emails, but when I did, there was a popup that said, "you are about to proceed to an unsafe website, do you wish to continue", to which I said no, and I exited. I deleted the email, and also deleted it from my trash. I immediately ran a malware scan, to which nothing showed up. My question is, do you think the link actually went through or did I exit in time? I just changed my passwords and I don't think I want to do that again? Thanks.
