have you

by Sue T In reply to dtwatson

There are a lot of possibilities but here are some of the easiest and fastest to try. You say you checked for spyware but did you run updated anti virus software to check for a virus? If the OS is Windows XP did you try doing a system restore to before this started happening? Tried reinstalling the OS over top? Recently installed a new program or piece of hardware? Checked in device manager to see if there are any red x's or exclamation points?

trojans can disable software that are supposed to protect them and remain undetected.Boot your pc in safe mode and dop a full virus scan.
