I made a stupid. First of all I downloaded a video to mp3 converter I didn't know (flvto.com) and then, deviously hidden within the documentation was a 'registry helper' that identifies 'problems' within your computer and says "We can fix it if you pay for a subscription to our service". Well, after these two programs found themselves installed (and I don't even recall giving permission to install that second one!) I was unable to access the internet from the 'pins' in the start menu - specifically google's homepage and facebook. Thankfully I can still go through the desktop to use the net, but it's just not as convenient. I've tried repining the sites from my access on the desktop, but all it does is put a pin that takes me to the internet via the desktop rather than the more user friendly start menu setup. Can anyone tell me what I can do about this?
*edit* I immediately uninstalled both programs as soon as I found out there were problems, to no avail.
Another problem (with this site): I am unable to access the 'manage my profile' tab.. I click it and nothing happens. The other tabs are working fine, would this be related?
