I have widows XP and this all started Friday
1. Every web page won't display pictures, instead of showing the little red x in the upper left corner for pictures it has a picture of a red square, green cirlce and blue triangle, very small in the upper left corner, for every picture. So I go into internet options and under advance click on "show pictures" under multimedia and click apply. that works for a while but when I turn the computer on (this morning) it reset back to blank pictures for websites again.
2. I tried going back the Thursday when I knew my computer was fine and I get to the restore point that I want and click next for the computer to continue and nothing happens....at all, it is like clicking it does nothing, so I can not restore my system now
3 and last every search link I click on takes me to some fake or another search engine of what I searched for in the first place. for instance, I search for something and I find a real link but it takes me to another fake site with results of whatever I searched for in the first place, not the link I clicked on. This forum is the only forum I can actually use while my computer is messed up. I can type in some websites directly to my address bar, while others take me again to a fake search engine site of whatever I type into my address bar. Can someone help me see what is wrong with my computer, I have Hijack This already dowloaded on my computer, let me know the first step in fixing this computer I have. Many thnaks.
