Upper left corner in the same panel, "fix selected problems".

Then close all your browsers, and Immunize them with the "Immunize" tab (2nd) in Spybot. That helps against a lot of scripts in your browsers.

Then try googling after.

I seem to recall someone using CombatEx's strategy about just keeping away from them and abusing their lack of mobility? I use a lot of blink stalkers to get under them, but that fails as often as it succeeds. I am interested in others responses to this question as well since I lost to BL's earlier today.

Do you have MSE? You should, but if not download it

Disconnect your internet and boot into safe mode. Run malwarebytes full scan, then TDSS killer. Reboot into reg mode and see if you get pop ups immediately. If not, re-connect internet and browse sites, use google, etc.

If you still have spyware, go back into safe mode (disconnect your router remember) and run MSE.

You can transition into those types of units if your all-in fails but normally no, just 3 rax Marine Marauder to kill greedy/bad players.

Should your all-in fail, just expand and switch to Marine, Marauder, Medivac, and some Siege tanks.

Depends on how the match is going and where you wanna go. You wanna expand first before you build a factory and then a starport. Starports are good to have for the medivacs to heal your stimmed units. Around that stage it's important to scout accurately and try to build accordingly. If you notice a starport with tech, it's safe to assume banshees. You could build more marines and vikings. If you notice factory with tech, its safe to assume siege tanks and if theres an armory, thors. Banshees are a good counter to siege tanks.

I'm finding that once you get that expansion up and running, you'll have so many resources. You gotta start to dream big. Stack on the barracks, get the upgrades going, get some factories or starports and just build build build.

Now scan your computer often and don't let that shit happen again. I also recommend re installing Windows every year or so. Shit makes such a difference.

Also, I don't necessarily agree with getting away with just Bio in Bronze league. Lately I'm finding that my initial 3 barracks build isn't winning the match every time. And it won't because other players are doing the same thing. What's winning me that match that extends to 20-30 minutes or so is how well I manage my expansions and upgrades. I've found that dreaming bigger, I'm able to max out my army more than twice as fast in the past. I'm expanding quicker and getting larger masses of units much faster. I love getting double engineering bay and getting simultaneous upgrades. In must a matter of minutes your massive army is so much tougher.

I actually have a question about Thors. What do I want their positioning to be among an army of Siege tanks, marine and marauders? They kind of naturally get stuck in the back because the smaller units push up.

Oh no... from one problem to another. I've had this problem before and I forgot how I fixed it :( Since that reboot, I've noticed that my screen is very dark.

I open SC2 and WoW and hell yes, it's MUCH darker than it should be. Look at the mini-map for instance:



Now the interesting part is that when I put the game on fullscreen, the brightness is perfect. But as soon as I go Windowed or Windowed (Fullscreen), it gets super dark. The same thing goes for WoW... anyone :/?

windowed and windowed fullscreen default to your standard windows brightness whereas fullscreen uses the starcraft brightness bar.

if you want them to be brighter, you have to do it via your monitor or gfx options.

Yeah I understand that but why did it change all of a sudden? And even when I'm changing the brightness of Windows, SC still looks way too dark in window mode, and it wasn't like this before I started rebooting the computer :/...

edit: yep, as expected. When I change my gamma and brightness in my Nvidia-settings, game looks slightly better but browsing Internet looks like shit... it wasn't like this at all :(.
