OK, I already had malware downloaded, and ran through th steps provided on th first post in nasties thread. Once again th malware scan locked up my puter when it hit th cyberlink camera files. Can't just open taskmgr and close not responding app, I mean REALLy locked up. I have to do a hard stop (hold onoff button down).
I did manage to get through a quick scan without lockup, it showed no viruses or malware.
A little more info, I have my acct (admin) puter guru (admin) and my sons acct. I have to log into sons acct to get to th web with any success, it just ends up locking up if I try any other acct. I still lock up occaisionally on sons acct but not often.
Th offending problems began a few weeks ago when I booted up one mornin and I had an AOL homepage instead of my page. Things have gotten progressively worse although I finnally managed to load up all important downloads from windows. I still can't load HP downloads, and most scans lock up before finishing or come up empty.
Sorry to be trouble here folks, Thanks for any suggestions
