Thanks for the advice. Funny you mentioned that... I was on the phone all night with Microsoft, and they concluded I have a virus. This is despite always running Norton 360 and getting Live Updates of definitions every day, not opening strange attachments, and always updating Microsoft software. Although I noticed that Norton stopped updating on Jan. 14, and now it won't update manually. Other "funny" things have been happening I ignored, like I thought I had a sticky CTRL key cause my mouse would zoom instead of scroll sometimes. Hitting CTRL would fix it. And sometimes Google would point me to links that had nothing to do with the search subject (although the titles of the entries were appropriate). Only would happen in IE, not Firefox. Microsoft ran one malware checker, and all it found were tracking cookies. Another malware checker results in a BSOD. I am calling Norton tomorrow to try to get to the bottom of it. I had tried some other advice-links from other forums first, but no remedial steps worked. I think you hit it on the head. Thanks again.
