Hey Taz. Yeh, I did uninstall and reinstall it. As well as AVG and hmmm, something else that I don't remember now.
Scanning, there were a few spywares, no more than any usual unclean scan. I like those that come back with nothing. lol
Pete, I'd forgotten about Spybot so went and got it. I love that program and can't believe I forgot to put it on here.
Vista is an adjustment but nothing to do with whatever the problem is (hopefully 'was'). I dunno.
