Thanks to you guys you got my computer working right, but its now started to play up again. it will quite often freeze when I change a page I will use F5 to get back on track. other times it becomes extremly slow and will time out. I run a scan every day nothing comes up all clean. when I have trouble with IE and it tells me that it cannot open windows Im not able to use the dieonistic button. My computor is getting old running XP pro. 4 gig ram , duel core. Thanks Ed.
