    i probably shouldn't be posting this here, but this is one of the ONLY webpages that i haven't had problems with, INCLUDING MY EMAIL

    I am haveing computer problems, possibly a virus. Most of the webpages i've been hitting today, and late last night have all been with little or no text. I can highlight the text and some of the letters show up, but still not all of them, and if i try to highlight again, i can see different letters. I also am having problems opening up my avery label guest list word document, it does somewhat the same thing, alot of the text is missing.

    I tried to view sorce on some of the webpages, and i could see all the text there fine...

    can anyone help me, any suggestions, ahhhh!!!

    help me jedimike, youre my only hope? maybe, maybe someone else has some ideas....

    i hope this problem doesn't start affecting the message board, cause it hasn't yet

    :( oh man, that sux. Do you have Norton's Anti Virus? If you don't then you might want to install it. it might be too late, but it could work. Also you might try installing a firewall. Those things really work. I don't know if that will help you now, but if it doesn't then I really recomend it after you get this fixed. Good luck!
