Just tried it Rita, it came up fine. Just search Knitting Pattern Central on google and you shouldn't have any trouble.

spyware!!! There's a spyware program that does that. There are some freeware anti-spyware programs that will clear it right up... we use Spy-bot search and destroy and ad-aware.

You're the victim of a hijacker. You should scan and clean your system immediately.

Spybot
Ad-ware
I also use 1-click (which I did purchase but was well worth it)

Hope this helps!:heart:

To the Spybot and Adaware I'll add AVG. Between those three those of you who insist on using Windows should be pretty well covered.

I have so much antivirus/anti-spyware/etc. on my computer that I'm pretty sure that is why my computer is so slow. I don't have a virus... my antivirus software is just all scanning each other trying to decide whether they are viruses or not. I don't have my school's **required** antivirus because Norton or Spysweeper or both were convinced it was a virus (fortunately my ex-b/f was having the same problem, at the same time, and discovered that "hey, they let us online to download the software... there has to be a way around this").
