Whenever I access the internet, I just see popups about adverts and other downloads that I do not understand. Help me clean it up

Why is bitdefender total security blocking my internet connection? I recently installed bitdefender total security 2015 on my laptop and I was unable to connect to the internet afterward. I have checked the firewall setting to see if it was responsible, but I did not see any thing to suggest that the firewall is blocking my connection. How do I troubleshoot to find out the reason for this problem?

Hi,

I hired someone recently to get rid of a virus. They said that I had gotten a virus called "conduit". I looked up what it was and its nasty. But I am still having the same issues that i was having when i hired the person. They were quite pricey so, before i drag him out here again and pay again I want to see if I can figure it out for myself. Can you give me a couple of easy ways to check and see if it is off?

Thanks!

What do I have to put in place to ensure that my website is protected from external attacks by hackers, viruses, worms or Trojan horses? Which security features are very necessary for maximum protection from attacks? Can I design my own system or it is wise to leave it to the expert to take care of it?

Sometimes when I chat with strangers on Omegle, they share some links of their pics or some files. Most of the time I talk about studies. Still in some cases, I came across some malicious users. Before opening their link, I want to know if it is a spam. Is there any tool which can help me to check a URL's validity without opening it? Also, can someone harm my computer, if open the links they have sent on Omegle?
