Check you computer for viruses and spyware.

Update your Anti Virus software with the latest definitions and run a full check.

If you don't have any Spyware installed try these FREE Downloads :

Spyware Blaster : click here


Ad Aware : click here

After downloading use the facility within each program toobtain the latest updates then carry follow the instructions to do a full scan of your computer.

If the above doesn;t work consider using System Restore to a date when you knwo the computer was working properly : Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore.

All the best,
