1) download adaware for free from and clean your system.

2) update to latest anti-v. definitions for your av program and do a full scan.

3) uninstall internet explorer / (repair if you can) - Reinstall internet explorer, download latest service packs / updates.

Should work fine after all that.

Good luck.

What video card, and version of IE do you have?

If you have IE 6 or DirectX 9 installed, you likely need to update the driver for your video card.

If a new video driver is not available, or does not fix the problem, you need to drop back to IE 5.5 SP2 and DirectX 8.1
