Hello! I'm new to this site and would appreciate some help. I use Windows XP Home for my OS. My problem is this........I will be surfing the net and every 5 minutes or so my computer will try to switch pages or something leaving the current page I'm on grey and unusable until I click back on the screen. It's not a huge problem but it certainly gets annoying after a while. Even if I'm not on the web, I'll be playing a game and the same thing will happen, pausing the game until I click back on the screen. Any help with this matter would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul D.

Thanks for your quick reply. I have Norton Anti-Virus and it is up to date and runs a scan every friday. It has found no viruses. I also have Ad Aware and Earthlink's spyware removal tools and run those on a weekly basis. Neither of those have fixed the problem. I tried going to the Trojan Scan website and it's telling me that my system doesn't meet the requirements to run the scan. That seems odd to me.

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
