Thanks for your reply Allen D, Sorry did not get back to you sooner, been having a lot of trouble with the pc, Yes I did try tools, internet options, advanced tab and reset everything to default, didn't help, I think my trouble started when I installed chrome, and I didn't untick the box which automatically installed MacAfee, I have Norton which comes free with my Comcast subscription, I do backup my
PC every couple of weeks, so I did a system recovery which I was trying to avoid, but I do thank you for trying to help

Hello Patch41,

Was the issue fixed by performing the system recovery?

Please write back to the forum if you need any further assistance.

Thanks Allen D, yes everything is running smooth now, I think it started when I accidentally installed MacAfee, that's when it seemed the problem started.
