    It will come as no consolation to learn I have the same problem with WordPerfect 11, which was loaded on my Dell when I got it.

    cannot find server

    Out of curiosity, did you update Norton Anti-Virus at about the time your problems developed? I discovered that when I last updated NAV it reset a number of the IE and email settings on my laptop, giving rise to problems similar to those you experienced.

    security download problems and about:blank

    Yes, it is Windows Xp. The HJT was downloaded Tuesday, April 26, as was Spybot. I cannot be sure when the about:blank problem began, since it is on a computer at work that I rarely use (although others use it daily). I estimate it began about a month ago. I am slapping my forehead and...

    Hijack This! log: Please diagnose

    Okay. . . maybe. I followed your last note, then on a hunch ran a search for svchost.exe on the C drive. This yielded a file titled in folder C:\WINDOWS\prefetch. Judging from the time stamp under "Date Modified" it was created when I ran the search function about...
