Well, as to how it happened, let's say I recommend that people do NOT traverse spunkysheets.com.
Anyway, the IE itself now presents a modified page with 'TNS' (in italicised PINK letters). I have internet connectivity, but renamed shdocnvt.dll so that the warningAPI.htm does NOT come up. I will post the exact url & verbage tonight (after renaming the dll back to it's original name).
Now, some observations, I can't logon to geekstogo from the workstation, it just gives me 'page not available.' Also, can't connect to the forums....so whatever this thing is, it selectively blocks the user from getting help.
Other sites are fine.....
