VoG sorry but i have been on that site and it's a bit to complicated for me. Any other ideas.

It is not difficult, honest!

Download, install and run the program.

A Window will pop-up. In the left hand pane click on Spybot-S&D, then on Search and Destroy.

At the bottom click on Check for problems. It will whir away for a few minutes, then display a list of spyware and other junk on your 'puter.

Click on "Fix selected problems" - I suggest that you do NOT tick any in the list that are not ticked automatically.

I used to be scared of Spybot S&D but as VoG™ says, it really is dead easy despite what it looks like - give it a go!!

Agree with VOG,but be very careful on your destroy selection, take special note of VOG's last paragraph.

Thanks a lot it seems to have worked. I hope one day to be as clever as you. Cheers.
