For the last week, I can't view certain things & will be redirected to Adobe/Macromedia/Flash to d/l the 'Adobe 9 Flash' update. When it's done updating, it still doesn't work. I also have trouble updating anything, it seems. & when I try to defregment my system, I get this meesage: This version of Disk Defragmenter does not support running more than one instance. What the...? Anyone?

Thanks for the links, Keith but I think I may have a worm or virus or something, may have to take this to the other forum & post a 'hi-jack this' logfile. It still won't update. I know my Norton has run out & am in the process of getting a new 07 disc. I also continue to get these 'delayed write failed' bubbles every so often:

Please follow the procedures outlined here: Malware Removal Guide

You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, please ask for advice in the Malware Forum
