    Yontoo

    alb1953

      Based on what I've read so far on Yontoo, it is malware. Is all malware bad? Is Yontoo bad and if so how do I get rid of it?

              Nope, not sure what is wrong, it appears that the board is having difficulty resolving links.

               

              http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-yontoo-toolbar-uninstall-guide/ is all it's supposed to be as you posted but for some reason it wont go there.

               

              Yet if I copy and paste it into my browser the page opens.

                Thank you ex_brit. I tried and tried, to no avail. (sigh)

                I might add that I meant the (Here) in your post # 2.

                It has to be the "Board", because I sent it through a email,and opened properly.

                 

                Frustrated.....

                  I tried that as well, but once again no luck.

                  Now I truly know what I want for "Christmas" this year !

                    This board will be upgrading in June. Hopefully it will work better.

                      As you say, when all else fails..."There is (always) hope.

                       

                      Hopefully, there will be no need to leave a "Glass of milk and cookie" @ Christmas.

                      I apologise for my semi-sarcasm....Calling it a day.

                      Thank you for your assistance Peter.

                       

                      I realise all of this undertaking is no easy task...
