Very weird problem -
web pages are fine, but when I try to write anything (e.g. a search word in a search engine) all I get is Gibrish.
System: Internet Explorer 5.5, Windows 2000, Office XP.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Scan your computer for virus, trojan or variant on-line at http://housecall.trendmicro.com That done:

Get and install Sygate firewall from http://download.com.com/3000-2092-10184369.html?tag=lst-0-1 if you aren't already running one.

Internet Explorer 5.x/6.x comes with a repair tool. To use it, go to the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Scroll and click to highlight 'Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x' in the Install/Uninstall window; Then click on the Add/Remove button; Select 'Repair' the current installation of Internet Explorer radio button; Click on OK. Restart your computer when prompted.

go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
