Hi, I am Bonzi and I found this site because I had a nice surprise on my comuter yesterday. The computer would not start - said hard disc error. I started in safemode and to backup all new data. Now all my web pages keep going blank. on the Mozilla -tools- option -homepage states that I am using aboutblank as my homepage. I use Spydoctor religiously -but - oh well. Now I am looking to all my new BEST FRINDS for help.

Nice to meet you! :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: to BC! bonzi.
You've come to the right place for computer help.
Sounds like you'd be better off to format once you get your backups.

Good Luck,
