    We have Vista, IE explorer 8.

    When I try to download a program, I jusst get into this never-ending circle.

    Do you want to run or save this file?

    I choose RUN.

    Do you want to run this program?

    I choose YES

    then I get an OPEN WITH window – my only option is Internet Explorer.

    Then it just starts over.

    I also get the same message when I first open Internet Exolorer. there are other little annoying things – like you have to actually click in the browser address box before it will let you type.

    this all happened after my wonderful husband downloaded – and paid for – some bogus software that the computer kept telling us we needed.

    I’m sure it is a virus of some sort.

    I’ve run AdAware and AVG. I cannot download any files, so I haven’t run any other virus scans.

    Thanks,
    Linda

    Run virus / malware scans in safe mode if possible.
