Hi to all,
I trust that you are all enjoying the holidays, even those of us who have to work! ;o) I've got two problems which I know you bright sparks will help this old buddy with.
One: My computer freezes just after log-on. It shows the desk top and refuses to do anything after that. I'm running xp home sp2 and have tried everything I know but to no avail. I'm able to run it in safe mode and have saved all my files on a memory stick. Now I want to format the hd and re-install xp. But..., before I start I just want to make sure I'm going to do it right. Any help will be truly appreciated.
Two: I'm using my wife's computer in the mean time, but noticed something strange. There's a web address on IE "http://main.94ak.com/" which I don't recognise. I have deleted the cookies, files and history on IE properties and it shows clear, but this unknown address keeps appearing and when I click on it without going on line, it starts to run but after half an hour I stopped it, because nothing visible has appeared. I'm afraid that it might be something with malicious intent. When it runs the desk top screen appears on the IE page. Any explanations or comments are most welcome.
