If your Dell was built after 6/04, you have a recovery partition. Press Ctrl+F11 on startup to restore the system to the way it was when delivered.

Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to cnet.com and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

Best virus/spyware protection


be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)
