Please help me remove this problem I dont want to use any other browser because this is so much faster and easier to use then IE Please help Cork.
Do a malware check with some malware scan programs.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.
