    My computer's been acting up like mad today and a little bit yesterday... Everytime I try to start up Winamp3, some thing will come up saying Debug or Close, and it won't start up... But when I turn my computer off/restart it, it will come up right before it shuts down... What the
    ####!?!?

    Sounds like you have some spyware/adware on your computer.

    Go to http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware and download it, then run it to clean the computer of spyware/adware. It works wonders!
     
  7. Stephen,

    Kazaa and other downloaders sometimes leave behind adware and spyware which in the long run slow your computer down to a halt and cause all kinds of nastiness. Get rid of them and get a decent adware/spyware program...

    Well, i'm using Kazaa Lite, but anyway... I went into Add/Remove programs, and somehow, magically, a shopping program, poker program, and 2 other things happened to install. My computer is running much smoother now that they are gone...
    That pisses me off...
     
  9. I can vouch for Ad-aware. I use it every time I log on, and every day it finds some spyware to delete. Really speeds up the performance of your PC without all those nasties clogging up your processor.

    Yeah, well I have ad-ware 6.0, and it didn't find it :eek: :rolleyes:
     
  11. Yeah, my computer's kinda hurtin from that.

    Stupid spyware and crap.
     
  12. Did you set it to scan all your files and folders? It takes longer but it finds stuff that the default scan doesn't.

    Was the poker thing called "club dice casino" or something'?
     
  17. As for your Winamp problem...

    That probably has to do with the stupid Minibrowser window pulling up some sort of bugged javascript or something.

    Turn off Javascript debugging:

    Open Internet Explorer
    Tools/Internet Options
    Advanced tab
    Under the Browsing section, you'll find the fourth option is "Disable script debugging". Check it.

    Click OK.

    Now try...
