Download problems... causes Explorer to pop up over and over

Hi,

i beleive i have a virus on my computer which is stopping me from downloading programs.

When i go to download a program the link shows up at the bottom of my screen as usual. However it shows an internet page simbol and when i click on it it opens up windows explorer over and over again till i switch off my computer.

The program i was trying to download was Kompozer but it had done it before and now does it on all downloads. Does anyone have an idea on what the problem is?

I have ran Norton anit virus but nothing comes up.

Kind regards

Adam

I wouldn't depend on Norton anymore for the modern day viruses and trojans out there, they just can't compare anymore.

However, I do believe your right with the virus theory. Go onto download.com and download Spybot - Search and Destroy and run it and see what it pulls up. If that scan comes up empty, you might have a serious problem.
