thnks for responding to help.
here is the info u asked for (i am a novice)
i hv winXP SP2 fully patched (except, of course SP3)
i use - mostly - IE 7.0.5730.11
rarely FF 1.8.20060.50817
i am connected to my ISP thru a cable terminating in my comp, connecting to realtek Rtl-8139d PCI fast ethernet adapter, which comes from a 'switch' they hv installed outside my house. (this is what they tell me). and the connection is 'cable' connection.
i scanned the computer with my AV (resident, and runs all the time), malwarebyte's AM, spyware blaster, spybot.
i also tried to restore system top previous point the next day that i had faced the problem for first time. i couldnot restore it beyond two days prior. all other points were un-restorable.
my AV is QuickHeal (CAT tech).
does this help?
i hope it does...
its annoying to use a comp that seems to be have a defiant mind of its own, as if it is bewitched or haunted.
