Default My computer is messed up.

I can't order nothing on line, I get KaZaa anymore, and sometimes its slow and I have broadband. Can anyone help me or do I have to call Compaq? I am really trying to prevent from calling them.

If you use IE, try downloading and using Netscape. Let us know if that'* better. Then we can figger it out further.

Could be a virus or spyware.

Go to www.trend.com to do a free online scan.

Also go to www.lavasoftusa.com to download AdAware 6.0 to scan for spyware.

I use both of those programs for spyware. But you have something else freaky going on. Time to increase your security settings in IE. And if you're not running Zonealarm, get it, too. The free version.

Did you run Trend?

It'* totally free, and finds all viruses. You still may have one. If not, then cool, you know for sure now.
