    Unhappy Newbie got a virus

    I've been a Powweb user for over 8 years now but my activity is limited to hosting my business website and emails through the webmail app. This morning I tried to download some drivers for my cheap Wallmart bought Vivitar camera and now my explorer won't recognize the powweb site. Does anyone know of a virus that can cause this problem and how I might get rid of it? This thing is keeping me from get my webmail.
    Please help.
    Thank you.
    Bill

    Are you running any sort of Anti-Virus program? What does that tell you?

    Malware. I'm scanning now and it came back with a Wallpaper Hijack message. Sounds bad so I erased it and I'm gongto reboot. This is too stressful for an Old fart like me. Thanks for the help.

    You bet. Google 'Wallpaper Hijack', I'm sure the results page will have all kinds of helpful links. Good luck.

    Edit: Here you go.. wallpaper hijack - Google Search
