Lets go ahead and reset all of your browser settings

INTERNET EXPLORER 9

Type Internet Options inside the Start menu inside Search programs and features.
Go to the Advanced tab
Click on the Reset button.


GOOGLE CHROME

Go to the installation folder of Google Chrome:
C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\User Data.
In the User Data folder, look for a file named as "Default" and rename it.
Launch Google Chrome and a new "Default " file will be created.

Which begs a question, actually. More than ever, I want to ensure I am backing up correctly. I currently run standard Windows backup, onto an external drive, regularly. Is this not OK? Other guy, earlier in thread, said prob not. Terrified of going through this again, want to ensure I am never without backup.

I'm sorry, it's late. Want me to shut up?

Start your backup from now . You know it's clean .

How old is the laptop ? Reason I ask is cause I remember seeing WildTangent which is full of trial games . If you don't play any of the games in there feel free to remove WildTangent.
