Hi rwsmit1. Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Please be patient. We'll need to wait on Malware to give you the "all-clear" before proceeding further, as the problem may get cleared up over there. If you still have this issue after being released by Malware, post a reply to this thread.

If you haven't gotten a response from Malware after three days, post a new topic in the Waiting Room forum and include a link to your original Malware post.
