I have even rebooted the PC

Using the system/recovery discs that came with PC

And it was still the same.

Check for any viruses or spyware with the following programs if you havent got them


AVG ANTISPYWARE FREE (use above site.)

If you have already checked, go to my computer, control panel, system and check how much RAM you have. If it is an older PC you may want to consider upgrading the memory at click here and clicking Scan My Computer.

I have done a AVG scan, and No Threats found.

So still open to suggestions.
