When I boot up my computer I get a window that says "Cannot Connect to Server". Below the error message there are options for "Switch To" and "Cancel". I used to get the message maybe 1 in 5 times, but now Im getting it every time I boot. Usually I just wait and the message goes away. Other than that, my computer seems to be behaving normally. Is this malware? I have run all of the spyware programs and they don't pick anything up. I have had the problem for about 2 months. It appeared around the same time that Winfixer did. Winfixer was removed about a month ago. The increase in appearance (from 1 in 5 to all the time) has been in the week or so.

Also, for some *((*&!!!!!!! reason, sometimes I cannot use apostrophes in Firefox. Instead of making an apostrophe symbol, when I hit the key, it bounces me out of the Firefox window. I can fix this by going into Tools Options Tabs, and then hitting okay. I realize this is probably some bug in Firefox and not a virus but I thought I would mention it. Again, does no harm to the computer, just annoying.

What do you think? Thanks.
