I am a teacher who received some old but quite good donated Compaq computers with Windows 2000 on them.
I bought a hub and hooked up seven of them to the school board LAN in my classroom. Everything was fine until yesterday when five of them started behaving very strangely.
When I click on Internet Explorer they go to the home page and seem okay. However, when I navigate away from the home page it goes to the requested site, stays there for about three seconds, and then goes to a blank white screen.The address displayed is:
http://assets.loomia.../setcookie.html (Loomia is apparently a social networking site.)
I have done searches and deleted whatever I could find with the loomia name but it just keeps coming back. It seems very strange to me that two of the seven are fine while five are not.
Please help if you can. I have spent a fair bit on wires and the hub, and my kids really need the computers to have internet.
