Well, I thought I was doing the right thing to stop google search result hyperlinks from taking me to all types of sites, but my computer is now frozen at the part that says it should take ten minutes, maybe double if I'm really infected. I printed out the instructions, and only now understand I shouldn't have run w/o help from someone. Can someone help? Dan

...and now I see I should not have posted the problem here. Sorry. I'm Dan, and spent a good amount of time in the Navy, so I should be better at following instructions.
