I have a Dell OptiPlex 3010 which is somewhere around 2-3 years old. It uses the Windows 7 operating system. We've had a few weird problems with it lately, but
I'll cut to the chase on the latest one. For some reason, the blue screen of death popped up 2 days ago. I think it also popped up about a month ago. This is unusual.
Any way, I've noticed that the computer does not want to update. When I have shut it down & restarted it later, updates are available. There are 5. The really weird
thing is that, as of yesterday morning, I cannot access my Facebook messages on this computer. I can access them on another desktop & on my Android phone but
not on this desktop. Something weird has to be going on for this to be happening.
A little while ago, the Norton Antivirus software box popped up, saying it had blocked some "Redirect 14 (?)" attack. I've seen that reference once before & know nothing
about it. Our Norton Antivirus software is up-to-date & scans the computer on schedule. I have just started a "Full systems" scan by Norton just to be safe & to see if that turns up anything.
Does anyone have any food for thought as to what is going on?
