    seanpaul99,
    We all learn from our mistakes!
    Back-up your data, download and save your PC's updated drivers.
    Format & do a clean install of XP, drivers, updates, & applications.
    You'll get a faster junk free computer.
    Before downloading anything search for reviews at sites like;
    'CNET Reviews' (http://reviews.cnet.com/2001-1_7-0.html?tag=hdrgif)
    Best,
    Treeman

    Is you homepage being hijacked?.. if it is, you will have to determine the
    hijacker (look at the webpage address for the homepage that loads, and then
    pay a visit to www.pchell.com for details on how to remove it..

    At this stage, it is ridiculous to re-format and start over..
