I see that you are a new member., I did not expect someone who may not have experience with this to experiment, I would suggest that you do nothing until someone comes along with experience,

It is what I did, I closed the page without Re-clicking anything since that is not going to help.


It is just that although it looks official, . . it surprises me that the government does not seem to be protecting us from those that don't mind breaking the Federal laws, .

I'm sorry !

No worries, I did a restore to an earlier point in time, before the issue appeared and that resolved it for me. I am new to this forum, not computers. Thanks
