I think Jacee is onto it.I remember awhile back I had a similar thing happening but I recall that it was a rewardfinds url. Thanks Jacee.

I may just reformat and redo. I like win 7, XP is ok but not like 7 and reformat is nothin.

Got a great list of tools. Thanks alot. If you still want to mess with this, I'm game but if not that's ok too. Atleast I know what it is...thanks Jacee you"re a doll.
