|dotty atteberry, sorry, can't offer you a better solution. FWIW, lots of internet game sites are hangouts for all manner of nasties (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Maybe one attacked you? Before you try anything else, re boot. Sometimes Windows just needs to 'clear it's head'.|
If that fails, try 'restore', maybe you can go back to a happier date? Still no joy, you can try one of the many nasty cleaners (lots of free ones, some even online) around. That's all I can suggest, will keep crossed fingers for you.
