The pages on the computer keep going funny bringing up the menu pages and drop down boxes. THey are just taking over the screen. I thought I might have had a virus. Something odd happened yesterday a picture of a mouse ran across the web page on mail. Is there anything going about? Also when I click on internet explorer "Globe finder " keeps coming on as home page. I sort this every day and it still comes back.My mouse was playing up yesterday so I swapped it over for my old one. Could this have done anything? Any help welcome.

re the browser problem, more than likely something has hijacked it, download spybot it hopefully will detect and remove it!

Thanks for the advice. Think I'm sorted. After using as advised and restarting the computer homepage is as it should be, and everything seems back to normal. Thanks
