    The information you gave me fixed my problem. Thank you so much! You made my evening. I have one more question. I made Google/Chrome my default browser....and everything seems to work there. The old google is still linked to the bottom icon....and the bank problem is solved there also....but, The question popps up that "microsoft internet explorer" is no longer my default, do you want to make it that....does that matter? Should I say yes or no....
    Just say no. Google/Chrome is your default browser now; it's better. Please let me know if you have any other question.
