Computer Problem/AIM Problem.. Help Needed!

Tue Oct 25, 2005 12:47 pm

Hi Guys,

I have a problem with AIM, whenever I receive a message and the window is minimized, it doesn't flash that I received a message, it only plays a sound. It's kind of annoying if I have my sound turned down or if I don't hear it, I have no way of knowing if someone sent a IM. Anyone know how to change it so it flashes? I've looked under "Edit Preferences" and I can't seem to find where you can select it to flash when your receive a message. Any help is appreciated.

Second, does anyone know how to change your default program you use to view a picture? I guess I was using some trial program that I have to buy or I can't open the file.

Lastly, I CAN NOT get rid of these stupid pop-ups, I have Norton Antivirus 2004 which I update at least once a week along with Adaware and Spybot Search & Destroy and I can't get rid of the Adware. I also have the Google pop-up blocker and they still get through. I apparently have some kind of searchweb2.com thing on my computer I can't get rid of. My Norton always find something that's bad and I delete it and it comes right back or it says the file is in use and the delete failed. I've tried Ctrl+Alt+Delete and ended basically all the Processes except the vital ones and then tried to delete those bad files Norton found only for it not to delete. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,
Kevin

Just google searchweb2 . You will find a whole bunch of tutorials about how to remove it.
