    Probably a bit over my head with what you suggested. I am still experiencing oddities like hearing a "Ding" sound while I was typing this post and the letters just stopped being displayed on the screen.
    I am not sure how this junk got in my box, but it has created havoc. I am still occasionally being redirected when I click on links to other sites.:(

    I am in the process of purging items that should not be on my computer. I have run across several files and folders that give me the following message when I try and delete them:

    "Access denied. Make sure the disk is not full or the file is not write protected".
    What does this mean??????......Thanks

    That usually means that Windows is accessin' the file so while it is you can't change it. Stop the program, service/s accessin' that file/s first and then alter/delete them.
