Whoa!...what was that....? I use an older XPProfessional 2002 SP3, Pentium 4-512 MB. AVG 9.0 This morning, for the first time, after looking at some on-line news articles (local newspaper)...I used the SAME WINDOW to type-in a new URL.
While viewing this new Website...all of a sudden...my screen flashed-back to the former Website! It happened so fast...I didn't have time
to look-up at my URL to see if there was a change. In a flash...it happened again.... so far, that's all.
I've never had this happen. Any ideas?

Have you run any full virus scans (updated AV program) since this happened? I would also run SUPERAntiSpyware or something similar.

You might also check Event Viewer for possible errors noted at approximate same time.

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Lastly...you might run the chkdsk /r command. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system, the command will execute. Upon completion, the system will boot into XP.

Thanks. Will proceed. Incidentally...any advice on a good malware to purchase? I'm just using my AVG I purchased a year ago (with Updates, ofrcourse). Thanks, again.

Any reliable, current AV will do...I use Avira Free, but any reliable, updated AV program does the job.

SUPERAntiSpyware is free. Not an AV program, but a good companion to an installed, updated AV program.

Malwarebytes is free...again, not an AV program but very useful to users trying to protect their systems.
