    Sounds like you have mixture of Adware and Spyware follow the instructions below to resolve your problems.

    First thing to do is reset your internet settings back to default, go to control panel, internet options, click on the "advanced" tab, then on the reset button, whilst in internet options click on the connections tab, then on LAN Settings and clear any ticked boxes, except for the "automatically detect settings box" finally click ok.

    Next thing to do is a quick scan with a program called Malwarebytes its very effective and free, you may have to download it to a USB memory stick using another computer and transfer it to the infected one if you are unable to get on the internet.

    Finally scan your PC with Hitman Pro it scans with five different anti-virus engines at once and only takes 10mins, click next and activate the 30 day free trial once the scan has finished and it will remove any malware found.

    there's only one hope for depression. That is an effective anti depressant medication. Depression comes from a checmical imbalance in the neurotransmitters and the brain and nothing in the world will alleviate unless you compensate for it. The right medication will do it. When you're depressed, you're unable to interact with a therapist by talking or be with or around anyone so talk therapy won't work. Being around people is a waste because the loss of interest makes it difficult to tolerate company and again, verbal interaction. You will have no desire for pets or taking care of animals as it's too labor intensive, too complex and your mind can't handle it. Excercise requires motivation which you have none. Until you can compensate for the chemical imbalance that's causing the depression and anxiety, none of these suggestions are useful.. Once you regain your sense of motivation and desire to do things, only then can any interaction or activity possibly help feel good.. There are ssri's, snri's mao inhibitors and trycyclic anti depressants. Some work better than others depending on the individdual. It is frustrating until you find one that works well with tolerable side effects. If none of these are ever an option, try ect (shock therapy)l

    You need to look at the minimum specifications in which the game runs; so check to see whether it can or not. I suspect not very well due to the graphics card and the speed of the hard drive. Because it is only 5400 RPM. You can only make it better by look for a 7200 RPM drive that is compatible with your laptop. Increasing the memory to its max might improve the gaming performance. But the video which uses Intel Extreme Graphics Drivers will not be able to upgrade itself except for the drivers with: REIMAGESOFT.COM

    Sounds like malware to me. First of all do NOT click on any of the antivirus ads that pop up. I recommend downloading free versions of AVG antivirus and adaware:
