|It is likely that Angie's spec says "Linux" because "Linux" was|
the default value for that field, and Angie left it as she found it.
It may have been set to "Linux" with the expectation that
everyone would put the correct info into that field. Ha!
Angiealien's problem sounds like it *might* be some kind of
malware attack. I'll leave it to others with more experience to
provide instructions for dealing with that possibility. Derek is
perfectly capable of that, as are many others here.
Angie, if you haven't already done so, try resetting your computer
by completely shutting off the power. Shut it off and unplug it.
If the computer is a laptop/notebook (those are the same thing),
remove the battery. While still disconnected from all power, hold
down the power on/off button for 20 seconds or so to drain the
charge from capacitors. Then put the battery back in and plug
back into the AC, and restart the computer.
