My email works fine now. I kinda took a route around the downloading page but that seems to work.

Yes, all of my protection is on. I have disabled the every day scan and will do it manually once a week.

I have a even newer problem. Maybe easy for most but I am clueless:(

When I try to put smilies on here or on other site forums. When I click on the smilie (or wherever out side the reply box) my cursor goes away from the reply box so the smilie can´t be used? I just smilies as an example. As soon as I click outside the reply box my curser goes away...................why?
I took the picture that looks like me the most!:) I really do hate virus! I´m thinking of chucking out my (kinda) new computer from the window! (two stories high) :)

Nice to hear you got it sorted and all protection is on!

Oh well, THIS is serious indeed!   :lol: :tease:  I am not sure what I'd do without smilie options.

When I look back in your thread, I see you were successful posting LandzDown smilies in your previous replies.  I wonder what changed?  When I click anywhere outside the reply box, and then click on a smilie, it places the smilie where the cursor was last positioned.  The smilie does not "animate" until you click on the Preview button, or click Post.  Does that not work for you too?

As to other forums, it could be different.  Example just below this reply box is "Additional Options..."  You can select "Don't use smileys," but I doubt you have that selected.

Maybe someone else will have an idea.  Otherwise, you are more than welcome to practice in the LandzDown Testing forum here .

VirusHater,
AS Ripley has said

if it is all animations you may have a program that may block animations from working,
as the  ZoneAlarm program has a setting to stop animations perhaps your does.
 if you have altered your settings that may account why you can not see the animations.

and you are as  Ripley said

I am gettin´lost here. The thing is that that everything worked okay before I changed my antivirus. BUT at the same time I have been in the temp files deleating like crazy. Not just the internet temp files but others, cookies and such. In the all user files and default user files. My problems are:

1. When I try to use the "go back in time" function I just get a white square.

2. The smilie problem  :lol: that seems to work now :smash:.

3. Signing in to sites. Doesn´t recognize my correct password (s)

4. Asking after javascript at for example youtube. Tried to download new version of adobeflash, just got dirrected to the page before.

I RECKON THAT ALL HAS TO DO WITH MY HAPPY FINGERS IN THE TEMP FILES?

By the way: I have both Explorer and Firefox. ow do I deleate explorer the best way? Add/deleate files?

Yes you use the Add/remove utility.
However I recommend that you leave it on your PC as it will always be a stand-in browser if for any reason your FireFox fails to load.
--
Now do you have the latest Java version if not please go and download it.
Then remove any older versions of Java using the Add/Remove

Need more info.  I am guessing: Clicking on the "Back" button of your browser?  Which browser? Using the Norton product:Go Back?  Using System Restore?

3. Signing in to sites. Doesn´t recognize my correct password (s)

Cleaning your temporary files, cookies, saved form history, could cause you to have to type them in again, but if the website is not recognizing your password(s)...many of them?  What message do you get from the website?

Older versions of Flash are security risks. 
My suggestion would be to follow these instructions to download/use the Flash Uninstaller which removes the Flash Player from both your browsers.  Please read the instructions thru to the end before running >
How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control
To install the latest Flash version 9.0.115.0 > http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
Remember to uncheck the box for the Google Toolbar should you not want it.

See if YouTube works now.

Not necessarily.  The computer should re-create what ever files are needed if they were cleaned out.  Some of the changes you are experiencing could be temporary "adjustments" while this takes place.
You had trouble getting CCleaner earlier in the thread.  Maybe try ATF Cleaner (for XP & W2K only >
http://www.atribune.org/content/view/25/2/

This will remove all files from the items that are checked so if you have some cookies you'd like to save. please move them to a different directory first.

      Save it to your Desktop.
    * Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
    * Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
    * Click the Empty Selected button.
    * Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
      Since you use Firefox
    * Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
    * Click the Empty Selected button.
      NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Internet Explorer is tightly integrated into your Windows operating system. Why do you want to uninstall it? 

Lastly, I see you had a nasty infection back in August > http://www.landzdown.com/index.php?topic=18722.0
Did you get that cleaned up? Are your scanners coming up clean now?

The safest option when AVG anti-virus finds something is to send it to the "Vault", an area for quarantine, rather than "Delete." 
Anything in the Vault can no longer harm your system, and you have the option to "restore", should it identify a file incorrectly (false positive).  I use that strategy for all my scanners with the exception of "cookies" which are always safe to delete.

Thanx guys!

You know what? I havn´t done **** and nearly all is working now. :blink:

The only thing that´s not working is that "go back in time and restore your pc accuring to that date" , don´t know the english comp term for that. In swedish it is "systemåterställning".

I have deleated Explorer and now using Firefox.

Thanx for the tip on not deleating at once in AVG.

VirusHater,
Thanks for letting us know that all seems ok except the "go back in time and restore your pc"

As far as you the "go back in time and restore your pc" do you mean the system restore (with in windows) or from a program.
