A virus maybe?

When i go on the computer i go to google and type in MathsIsFun then i go to the forum and log in. It won't let me. Is it some sort of virus thing?

It won't let me log in when i go through google, but when i type it on the bar at the top, it does.

Does it happen with anyone else?

no JFF that doesn't sound right. if his browser was blocking cookies he cannot log in whatever the case.
Use the link i provided in my siggy and just post your problem there, it might be malware.

Re: A virus maybe?

you PMed on that! LOL. I'm still not sure though, i think i need to ask before i do anything, y'know major. my papa download almost every single day movies, films, music. most of the time this is rare im even on this computer. it had the worst virus before, like, a year ago i can remember the name, something to do with knights or horses or something... every time you went on something it came up a blue screen and -how can i explain this- like went you boot up only in white writing and a blue backgroud.

Do you know this? and would it effect it?

Re: A virus maybe?

The virus you are talking about is a Trojan(a type of virus) and these sites do the exact opposite of what you are talking about.
Yes i know the blue screen you are talking about too.

Re: A virus maybe?

These sites i recommended do the same thing your friend did to fix your computer, its just much easier than taking it to a friend/computer shop to get it repaired.

Sounds like malware, check the sites careless25 gave again just incase you have missed something important.

Never, ever go to the site mentioned here.
