    Probably some addon.
    What browser?

    If you're using Firefox 3.x, close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode).
    If you're using Firefox 4, or higher go Help>Restart Firefox with Add-ons Disabled.
    Same issue?

    Actually before doing that I just opened up to see what addons were running in Firefox and its an addon called Groovy Blue. I removed it and everything is normal. Be back later gotta take the little woman to dinner.

    Uh that adobe link does not work I keep getting a 404 not found error. I do not use IE ever so I dont want adobe for IE but that link does work the other does not. Also the link seems to point to a 32bit version vs a 64bit which is what my system is.

    You can safely uninstall Adobe Air if you don't use it (most people don't).

    Ok well as far as my computer goes I think everything is running perfectly. I have 2 other computers in the house I am going to be running by you guys here at TechSpot within the next few days. One is the community computer and there is no telling what is wrong with that thing. The other my software development laptop which has been giving me some really awful issues. I greatly appreciate your help with this and I will def point other people I know in this direction. I love how you guys make it so easy just follow instructions and everything is taken care of. BTW I looked at a lot of the logs just to see what I could make out of them and I am a fairly knowledgeable when it comes to computers which is why I am nearly done getting my associates in Software Engineering. I would like to know more about being able to read these files myself is there anywhere you could point me to learn about this type of thing?
