    Go to system restore and RESTORE the system at a date before this happened... what sort of silly websites were you looking at? no anti - virus protection?

    Shit! Check the traffic monitor immediately also, too. Look for abnormalities. That lappy could turn into a zombie.

    Usually Control Panel -> back up and restore Centre
    For thorough instructions go to
    Windows Help and Support
    Type Restore System in Search

    Tony is a good kid and my friend; however sometimes he gets carried away and needs a bit of "earthing" so he can remember his good manners again!

    Bloody hell Tony. I did a Google 'boot in safe mode' and got a bazillion answers. The first was this .

    You need to wake up to yourself, stop belly-aching, grow some backbone and stop being a dribbly, wet dribbler. Get a clue. Help yourself. I really hate to see wet people. Like really. And so do girls.

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.
