Browsing error need help immediately.

by Snog14 / December 10, 2012 7:48 AM PST

Hi, For as long as I've had this computer(compaq running on Windows Xp) it's had this odd error message on certain websites saying "file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Charles/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Picasa/Screen%20Captures/Fullscreen%20capture%2012102012%2053930%20PM.bmp" I believe this is a virus & now it's messing with my usage of facebook & google. So please help as soon as possible.
-Thanks, Matt.

Does it freeze up if you boot into safe mode?

Why not remove the Yahoo toolbar and apps?
