Word, Kaspersky and Home Page Problems

Hi All, Happy New Year,

  1. Word's 'Normal' template reverts to default 1.5 line spacing and 'Add space after paragraph' settings even if updated to follow current doc.
  2. T'bird will not update since Kaspersky Total Security installed.
  3. Home page not always first choice for Firefox, tho' set. Instead MSN commonly opens up as the default.

Anybody wise words on any of these irritations. I thought that software, once installed could not be overidden. It's like a book changing text every time you open it. I find computers, at least the ones running Windows progs, very exasperating, tho' we can't do without 'em. To think the world runs on 'em!

Regards, Rog

I think the first thing I would do is run Malwarebytes to see if you have a nasty!

I don't have Malwarebytes but,instead, fully paid for vrsions of Kaspersky Total Security, CCleaner Pro and Spybot, which I run often. In 20 odd years I've never had a single piece of malware, tho' earlier using Zone Alarm, AVG, Avast, Adaware, Malwarebytes, SpywareBlaster and Spybot, etc, etc, free versions. Any other ideas, please? I guessed Alexei's stuff was spam, thanks WeeEddie.
