    I was just surfing the net, when Norton detected a virus on the computer, and it took care of it. The only problem I have found is that everytime I try to type in a webpage, I always have to put http://www before I put the site, how in the hell can I fix that?

    ooo im having the same problem...
    if you dont type in the " http://" and just the "www." it sends you
    to some randomly wierd search engine right ?
    if so you have to get a 1 of those anticomputer ad programs
    so it can search through your computer and destroy all
    the potentially dangerous cookies and/or whatnot crap your
    computer may have encountered on the internet


    edit: anti-ad computer programs

    I tried the Virus Scan, but nothing was detected and it is still doing the same crap. What is Opera and mozilla? Now every time I try to install Mozilla, it goes right to that search engine, WTF?
