I got this resolved. I used a Kerpersky free scan to find and fix. I had the Trojan win32.pincav.cmtw. It kept opening up IE 10 with a non-existent address. My husband goes to some of the more controversial websites and I suspect that's where it came from. I had installed Malware Bytes and it had disabled my Windows Security Essentials so it was not caught. Any suggestions for an anti-virus besides Norton (it's a hog). I'm considering Kapersky anti virus

MalwareBytes and MSE get along just fine. Have no idea why it would have turned off MSE.

The last change in that FAQ was 2008, I see one suggestion for a link given 2011 is still there. Is this FAQ up to date for now?

Not that I am aware, but there are still links that might be useful.

Waaay too many of the linked sites here should be updated, IMHO.

Don't ever get rid of him. People like him make me and a lot of other people some good money. Keep up the good work lol.
