I'm rally in trouble. I can finally sign on CS today but when I went into Adsend and tried to to EngagemeTV, none of the videos credited...and I had the one open for over an hour. I can't do other offers. I get the "Kill page" message.

I think my 'puter is done for and that makes me very sad unless it's my anti-virus doing it for revenge since I didn't pay for another year.

Ah! Noticed that none of the Engageme.TV "Verify" popups aren't popping up. So even though I watched for over an hour, there were no ADS. Just information. This is probably (hopefully) the problem here.

You might try looking in local papers, eBay, flea markets, garage sales, for a computer.

I visit an antique indoor mall some times near where I live. It's a very large building with
booths that sellers rent the space. All kinds of stuff, not just antiques. They have computers,
laptops, all kinds of stuff.

There's a guy that use to post on these forums a lot. He goes to yard sales often and has
yard sales at times. He gets all of his computers and laptops for dirt cheap from yard sales.

A lot of people sell their computers for very cheap when they get a new one.

Use Avast or AVG , both have free versions and perform much better than others .
Both are updated more regularly as well .
No pop-ups could be a setting in your browser like Firefox ?

i had used those 2 at different times but caught a virus that slipped through. I went to IObit and never had a problem with viruses. I really liked the program but it sometimes took a good driver/part of a program as a virus and obliterated it; then I'd have to do some work to fix it. :)

As for computers like Valerie suggested, I've been watching the paper. Since I can't drive anymore, I can't go to yard sales anymore. :( I used to go every weekend. I don't like the newer operating systems either. I'm stuck in the "dark ages." :) XP is my go-to. Some of my programs are paid digital downloads, too, and I wouldn't be able to transfer them to a newer computer. I would love to take my 'puter to a "mr. fix-it" but they'd probably charge an arm and a leg because I know there are things wrong from the beginning of 2003 when I bought this one. Let's face .....it. I'm hopeless.

Mischad, You really shouldn't use Windows XP as your operating system if you want to avoid viruse's in the future.

Microsoft stopped udating it in 2014 and it's not considered safe anymore, Consider to use at least win 7 until 2020, It's important to scan your system with antivirus software (Iobit is fine for that job), But updating your operating system with microsoft's Updates/patches is even more important (Windows update).

I think your virus problems may be related to your XP being unsupported, Anti virus programs are supposed to be an extra safety feature if something slips throgh your firewall, They are not supposed to safeguard your entire system (Especially not for several years).

I'm not to fond of the operating system's either, But if you want to stay safe it's either them or to install Linux (It looks even older than XP :D ).

Hope you can find yourself a cheap laptop with Window's 7 or 10.

Depending on the specs of the computer,
You can install Windows 10 free and
activate it later. . .

I went from Vista to Windows 10 Pro, just
had to add ram (memory). . .

Chances are Windows 10 Home will run.

My machine is not activated for a few months
now.

The only thing I can't do is remove the recycle
bin icon from the desktop. :roll:


Unless you have a habit clicking on links you
probably shouldn't, get rid of all the anti virus
stuff. . . .

By the time all that software updates, you will
barley have enough resources to use the
computer.

Or buy a cheap used PC from eBay & install one of the hundreds of (free) varieties of Linux. Most Linux magazines at the local newsagent will have a free disk included.

May not be your computer. I had video ads on for about an hour and they never credited either. Before you go out and buy another computer, see if you're having problems with other ads here.

Also erase all the cookies on your computer and run the scan.

Some of these ads can credit much later although they don't indicate that.

The Ubuntu Linux is up to date and will work on almost any computer .
And , bonus, you don't need an anti-virus program.
It is sort of a cross between Windows and Apple , but VERY stable and reliable . :clap: :clap:

Won't I lose all my programs and links if I switch OS? Someone else told me to use Linux and I'm very tempted but I can't afford to lose the programs installed o the antique since some were paid digital programs (no disks).

What good are the programs on your computer if your computer does not work?

Most all software programs that you purchase, have a website log in so that you can
log in and reinstall the software and/or receive updates.

I mean my gosh, you said your computer is about dead. Just using common sense
that means you are going to either need to buy a new computer, a user computer,
have the one you presently own repaired.

Uninstalling and Installing a different operating system may not help at all. Often
if your computer is old and you have used it for a long time, there are various things
that can be bad with it that have nothing to do with the operating system installed on
it.

If you don't have back up's for whatever programs you are referring to, then I would
suggest backing them up now if you can. Maybe a disc or a cloud service. Today
however almost all programs are going to allow you to do more than one install.
I even have the old coffee cup software from many years ago and I go over to
coffeecup any time and download the software again when I want and to any
computer I have.

Bottomline is, if you don't do back ups of your photo's or stuff you save on your
computer, cloud usage, you will just have to chalk it up as a loss. Because when
your computer is dead, it is dead ....... especially if you are not willing to pay
someone to try and recover what's on there.
