I've run virus and spyware checks and found nothing.

    Another odd thing I noticed is I try to access a certain web site for video ( I am told that the video may not be viewed outside the US! I'm in Utah, and it may be debatable if that is outside the US. But I think for this purpose it would be considered US.

    It`s been fixed in the registry,by either an anti spyware program -Spysweeper, Windows Defender,Spybot SDD etc. or Compaq.
