FYI For what seemed like no apparent reason; 'Internet Options" (I keep an icon on my dsktp) stopped working. It would flash quickly and that was it. I read various posts and tried them all to no avail. System Restore refused to work. I tried four times. Finally, I went back into 'Programs' , "Recent Updates" and noticed that I downloaded an unusual amt. of Windows updates the previous day. My machine usually rejects all but a few. This time it downloaded at least 20 Net Framework additions. It seemed to me that was the only variable. I had to uninstall each one, one at a time.... it took hours. I landed up with a Black Screen for a long time. I disconnected the batt. long enough to cause a re-boot. It took about 15 min. for everything to come back but LOW AND BEHOLD... not only do I have 'Internet Options back but. My machine flys like never before. I'm loving it.

Bottom Line: Check out the dates on your Windows updates in 'Programs' to see if there's a correlation. I have the best Anti-Virus $ can buy and have had no problems for three years. I'm going to depend on it and forget about updates for awhile. When I do.. I will download one by one and check efficiency before downloading the next one.

BTW I had no 'Internet Options' on any of my Search Engines through 'Tools' or any other way in.
