NFR I need a little computer help

Discussion in 'Fly Fishing Forum' started by Old Man, Jul 12, 2014.

  1. The other day something showed up on my computer. It is called Arcade Parlor. It underlines a lot of word's on this site with double blue lines. It doesn't show up on any other sites I go to. Just this one. I've tried just about everything to delete it.

    It's got instructions on how to delete it. I do that but it's still here.

    It probably shouldn't bother me, but it does.

    I'm not to computer smart and would like some help in trying to dump this site. It's not in "Programs and Features", on the Control panel. If it was I could get rid of it.
     
  2. Arcade parlor is often associated with midget porn. You dirty dog old man!






    Joking.

    do this:

    download this program: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
    run the above program you just downloaded, it will clean out some of the junk on your PC.
    restart your computer
    uninstall this arcade parlor in the traditional way (my computer -> uninstall/change program)
    restart your computer
    run the adwcleaner (the program you downloaded in step 1) again.
    restart your computer


    During this whole process do not open any other program. You can cut down on all these steps w/o restarting but this is a fool proof way to get rid of that shit plus all the other crap that gets loaded on your pc.
     
  3. what browser are you using? It sounds like an addon.
     
  4. I tried this one and it worked. I'll keep this bookmarked so if it shows up again I can get rid of it. This was pretty simple. I could even do it.

    But thanks to all who answered my call for help. I really need it.
     
  5. Yep =) it was an addon

  7. I'm usually afraid to add anything I know nothing about. I don't need anything gumming up my works. Sometimes when it says free download you end up paying on the end of it. I tend to steer away from those.
    Like the other week I added something so I could watch video's better. It had 7 different addons that I had to delete.

    Not only am I computer dumb, but computer scared some times. Plus I never open anything I know nothing about or from anybody I don't know.
     
  8. what was that address for the midget porn site? ;)
     
  9. Not opening that.
     
  10. The ONLY thing you need on your computer for videos is VLC media player. It's the only one that doesn't add a bunch of bullshit, and will basically play anything.

    If you need help cleaning things up, I have tools for doing remote access. I can fix your computer from here in my office.
     
  11. Thanks for the heads up. Right now it's running good.
     
  12. What, are you feeling better. Your here typing. Gonna be out fishing soon, huh.
     
  13. Glad to see your sense of humors intact.
