I've had the returned emails from people in my mail list who I haven't emailed. (Buggered things up when I opened it.) So have a lot of people in my mail list. I've installed Norton, run it through McAfee (which seemed to be disabled by the problem, spybotted it, had a friend who has more computers than is healthy work through the beast but still have a problem. I reported it to MSN,as I have a problem with reaching the hotmail homepage, reloaded the latest version of explorer, but still have problems. Anyone with a solution will win a great deal of gratitude.
