HOPE I am posting this in the correct area.
I don't have a virus.
Here is my story:
recently (like a month ago) I was online (as administrator for my comptuer) and I got the pop up's that said "there is a new version of IE and Mozilla...would you like to update??" I clicked YES and did. I now have the most recent IE7 and Mozilla Foxfire. I did also add these add-on's that were "recommended".
THEN, my computer crashed. And, it keeps crashing (within 5min of being online).
I disabled the 'add-ons" via the little toolbar provided. That did nothing. Kept crashing.
So, I did a System Restore....which then I keep getting asked (begged) by the computer to UPDATE. So, I did update but did NOT add any add-on's.
Then, it still crashes w/in 5min of being online.
So, one day for the heck of it, I decided to sign online via one of my user accounts (my husbands or childs) and noticed that I do NOT crash EVER.
So, it must be something with ADMINISTRATOR mode that is crashing me.
I need to get back to my Administrator account as I have all my pics and documents stored there,etc.
Is there anyone who can assist me or point me in the right direction of where my problem lies???
I appreciate any helpful feedback. (I don't really understand this stuff)
My Security is McAfee Security Center (most recent edition).
Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.
