Carol, I was having some of the same problems as you were having for the last two days before I got the message that I had the Netsky virus. It only happened when I clicked on the Links button on my home page though. Then everything but my curser froze. Clicking on the X in the upper right corner did nothing, etc.

I donít know what OS you are using, but I use Windows 2000 Professional. It has The Task Manager function to exit programs that are not responding. I press the Ctrl/Alt/Delete keys, and it usually pops right up. It was taking 2 or 3 minutes for it to appear for the last couple of days. When I would click on the program that was not responding to end it, it was taking another 2 or 3 minutes before it would end. Frustrating.

Until I got the notice about the Netsky Fixtool today, I was thinking that I might need to use the Repair Console function in W2K to repair, or reload my OS. Everything is functioning normally now.

Since you do use Norton, you might want to download the Netsky Fixtool from Norton to a floppy using your partners computer (assuming it's not an Apple), then run it on your own computer. You start the program in the Control panel. I'm assuming that your curser still functions and that you can access and use the functions in Control Panel. I provided a link and simplified instructions on how to download and use the Fixtool in my post above.

Of course, you may not have the Netsky Virus, but if you do it will be removed. If not, at least you can rule it out as the cause of your problem.

Good luck, Rex
