Suggestions: Anything wrong with your computer, curious about what our government really can do through technology, how does the internet work, hacking, webiste design, etc.

My kids jacked up my dell inspiron laptop. Whenever you try to start it up it shuts itself down (after you type password) im sure it's spyware, how do I start it and bypass the malware shutting it down?

 Attempt to start it in safe mode. When the computer first starts up, you will see a screen flash very quickly that says something similar to "press F/hold/escape key to select setup"  It depends on the computer what it will say.

Once you are in there you should be able to navigate to an option that says "boot in safe mode"

Once in safe mode, you should be able to log in without the virus infecting the computer. You have a couple of options: you could use a different computer to download FREE antivirus scanners like malwarebites, avg, microsoft security essentials and install and run them.

You will also be able to access the control panel and do a system restore if you think you know the time when all of this started happening. I would recomend using the virus scanners first and if that does not work then do a system restore.

Hope that helps!!

No questions, DH and I have both done tech support work at one time or another.

Is it possible to get someone's IP address from CM or similar websites?

 It is possible to get the IP address of cafemom.com (easily)
Can you get the IP address of another poster.....uhhh.....yes and no. The short answer is no. The long answer is yes, but you would have to hack the server and have full access to the cafemom server. You would essentially have to be a hacking genius.   :)
