    Best answer: If System Restore is enabled in whatever version of Windows you are using, restore the last restore point that was created before the problems started.

    If that doesn't work or system restore is not enabled, make sure system restore is enabled and create a new restore point, or better still create a new full image backup. Then open Device Manager and uninstall the Monitor and Display Adapter drivers. You will have to do this in safe mode. Reboot, and the drivers should reinstall automatically and hopefully without the problem.

    Always keep regular backup images of your disk drives, particularly C:. For other drives you can just keep copies of the files themselves. Disk drives can fail and can do so without warning. It can be really painful trying to rebuild a system after a disk drive failure without a backup.

    I hope this helps.

    Best answer: No.

    It's quite secure, but it's definitely not "untraceable", especially when you don't take privacy precautions.

    It's better than a conventional browser, but if you're concerned about privacy and anonymity, you'll want to use a proxy like Privoxy, or (better yet) pipe it through a VPN.

    Even better is to run it through a dedicated OE like Tails.

    Then, avoid surface web sites (especially major search engines), avoid cookies, and avoid allowed any website to run flash or java scripts.

    I recommend, for you not to rely on anti virus software. I relied a long time ago on anti virus programs, and it has caused me more grief, and more problems, so now I no longer use it.
