Sounds like it might be a virus or other malware. Scan with your A/V. Photo places are notorious for problems.

Question: I do not use the site. Any possibility that they are busy before 3 and after a certain amount of traffic they do not want you to log on until it is slower?

No, could not find anything. You have been a member long enough to know, everyone here would contribute any knowlege that they might possess. The fact that we have been having a two way dialog does not bode well.

I checked our tutorials and Google and came up with zip. I guess that other website did not have any better results?

Sorry
