  1. I have no idea what or why it happened & I'm hoping I fixed the problem, but I went to watch my news online this morning & after a few minutes this popped up
    Well, its obvious by the background picture I WAS online & clicking Reload changed nothing. I tried to update program & definitions thru the program but it said they were current. I downloaded a new copy from TS because I was going to uninstall/reinstall. I then went to program & features & when I saw repair, I clicked it & it said it was successful.
    Yes, this is on my W10. I'm hoping it DID fix it, if not, I'll do a follow up post.

    Well, it didn't take long so I uninstalled,rebooted & reinstalled. If that don't fix it, :mad::confused::confused:

    If anybody has an idea why it happened, kindly tell me
    "EDIT" So far so good. Oddly enough I had a similiar situation with SpywareBlaster yesterday & had to uninstall/reinstall it for it to work. I hope nothing odd happens tomorrow.

    On Win/10 Spywareblaster is not necessary - - it's primary function was to control Active-X and that has been removed from Win/10
