    Just this morning, my computer's been acting a little weird. I hope it's not a virus. :(
    First of all, my tab doesn't work like it's supposed to. I had a WordPad document open and I had a website open but when I pressed the TAB button to indent space on my WordPad, the website page showed up instead. It won't let me add TAB on my document.
    Second, if I'm on a website, like right now, if I move the mouse at all or scroll down or basically do anything, the page like blinks for a second.
    Third, normally when I click on the little Internet Explorer icon on the Start bar at the bottom of the screen, it opens up google.com because that's what I set it as but now when I click it, it opens up Properties. I have to right-click and click OPEN to get google.com Why does Properties show up instead?
    This all has been working just fine until today.
    Could anyone please tell me what's wrong and how to fix it? :confused:
    Thanks,
    <3 Marina

    it apears that the alt button is on at the same time because alt tab changes windows and alt when clicking on ie brings up properties
