Thanks for your assistance in this matter. For some reason I cannot remove Symantec AV but I disabled it completely and installed AVG Free.

I will update my programs per your suggestion and hopefully keep my computer free of any future issues.

Thanks again!!!

FYI I have been using Google Chrome as my web browser. I need to uninstall IE becuase my children use this PC as well and always default to IE for web browsing.

What you could do to hide Internet Explorer (since IE is the default and most supported), is go in to Google Chrome, and do the following:

Go in to the tools menu (wrench icon) and click Options. Click the Basics tab, if needed, and click "Make Google Chrome my default browser."

Then, delete any shortcuts on all Desktops that refer to Internet Explorer. Also, delete any entries in the Start Menu that refer to Internet Explorer. Which means, the only way to access IE, is C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

If you want to force the usage of Google Chrome, make shortcuts to the program on the Desktops. It will probably be in the Start Menu as well.

Does this seem suitable?
