It would appear something has got into my Browser. When I connect to the Net, My home page has disappeared and I am flooded with popups of various sorts. Have been into Internet Options and reset to default settings, cleared cookies, Temp files and History. Reconnecting to the net shows this to have done no good. The default home page having been changed. The only way I got to writing this message was using my Favourites link. All Web pages including PCA page have no Address bar, restricting use of searching the Web. All offers of help gratefully accepted
