Thank you for contacting Just Answer.

So next, if the same issue is occurring with both Internet Explorer and Firefox, update your antivirus software then run a full antivirus scan as it sounds like there may be malware on your computer.

Then after the scan reboot the computer and try the same web sites again.

If still an issue then in IE do the following:

Open Internet Explorer then from the Tools menu, select Internet Options then choose the General tab. Under Browsing history, click Delete. Next to "Temporary Internet Files", click Delete files. Click Close, and then click OK to exit. Restart IE.

I didn't get your answer back ,so this morning I contacted Dell because my laptop was only a month old and still under warranty,they put me thru to a tech rep who determined that a virus had taken over my computer,they took over my computer from their site nd did 55 minutes of work with me assisting and supposedly fixed the problem,so far so good,I just logged on when I got your answer so I don't think I need it,If I do I will accept but for now I decline.

Thank You
