okay,so the thing is that anytime my protection on the pc informs me about something i dont need,i always select”block this……….” and i dont know wat happened but i saw something about yahoo messenger and i thought it was spam or spyware or a virus that had it,so i just clicked on “block” without reading it which i know was stupid, and u dont have to tell me that,but now when i want to sign in,it starts but then after like 3seconds it stops again and ive been trying to sign in for the past 48hours,did i by any chance block yahoo messenger and if so,how can i unblock it????

I have run all the major free Antivirus, spam and trojan scans and nothing turns up. I tried Microsoft malicous code scanner. What can a person try to stop these runaway processes? At times there are 40-50 ipconfig.exe images running, under the system.
SUPERANTISPYWARE got rid of 24 incidences of spyware, in my computer, then I installed ZoneAlarm for more protection, but I keep getting a security alert OVER AND OVER that “18.104.22.168.static.user.ono.com” keeps trying to connect to me. What can I do to stop this, thanks.
Now I’m getting readings that 22.214.171.124 (from China) is also attempting to connect, I don’t know what to do…

I get several “returned” e-mails a day, I read that this means someone has stolen my e-mail identity and is spoofing my address. Is there a solution to stop me getting all these e-mails that I have never sent being returned?
I have scanned for viruses and spyware, and have a soft and hardware firewall howw did this happen?
Seeking Redemption :
Just recently when I click on a link (sent mail, in-box, and actual messages etc.) in Yahoo Mail, I am redirected to a spam advert page for gambling. Here is the spam page http://pbid.pro-market.net/engine?site=119121+page=+space=9717+size=180×150+linktarget=%27_blank%27+rnd=1244539606
Sometimes this is so bad I can hardly use Yahoo because I’m battling to go back to Yahoo away from the gambling page while it keeps trying to go to the gambling spam page, and then sometimes it simply stops and Yahoo functions OK.
I have contacted Yahoo about this (I only just sent the mail) and I have also scanned my whole computer for viruses, adware, spyware, and the scan result was clean. I am using AVG and AVG are looking into the issue.
While I wait for Yahoo and AVG to reply I was wondering if anyone else has experienced these problems or if you have any advice or know what is going on?
I’ve googled “pro-market.net” and its seems “pro-market.net” is related to spyware but I also realize companies like Yahoo do business with advert tracking companies such as “pro-market.net” and “doubleclick” who dump their tracking cookies on our computers. When pages load for Yahoo-Mail pages I also notice stuff loading for ad.yieldmanager.com which is a tracking cookie evil, I think. I am currently blocking all third party cookies but this is not helping.
Thanks for advice and feedback.
AVG is apparently better software than trendmicro, according to reviews. I have switched away you Yahoo Classic to the more modern Yahoo mail reader, and so far it is OK so maybe the problem is something to do with Yahoo Classic?
camryns mommy :
My computer has been very slow here for the past 3 weeks & I keep having the pop ups saying your computer is infected with spyware free scan now. Also on some of the web sites I go to, pictures on them change to a little box that says my computer if infected with spyware. Im assuming it has a virus. I have deleted my cookies & that didnt help. What do I need to do? All these diffrent websites keep poping up & start scanning my computer but I am scared to let it finish incase it is another virus trying to attact my computer. Norton anti-virus poped up and told me that there was an attempt to attack my computer but it was stopped.. A little help anyone??!! Thanks!
