Default anti virus/spyware?

1.

"Safe mode" means your computer has only the bare minimum processes running in the background.

Depending on your computer, you will either have "restart in safe mode" as an option in the shutdown/restart menu, or will need to hit one of the "F" keys during start-up (search for "start in safe mode" in your help section to find which one).

Once you do the scan and delete any problems you find, restart your computer normally.

2. And one should not only regularly clear their cache of "regular" cookies, but also clear cookies from the separate cache of Flash Player.

I am talking to all of posters in all of the forums, I want to see how wide spread this is and see if there may be some clues to help me piece this together.

And..if you get it here again, please give me the 6 suggestions I posted in my last post.

Some other suggestions from posters in other forums is:
