Cannot get onto secure sites on internet. When trying to run certain games, notepad screen comes up with lots of gobbledegook! and only legible part of screen says this program does not run in ms dos. Computer is 1200athlon running xp home, 21/2 yr old tiny system. Norton installed but cannot download updates because of above problem. Any ideas?
