Help. starting the computer re boots a couple of times, not that unusual with windows 98, then starting up explorer tries to go to the home page them multiple pages open from various sites till it stop at a page inviting any key to acess. I was not tempted to enter this site but Task manager lists many unknown programmes running and the web pages can not be shut down. Programmes include famous_downloader. I have tried deleating from tempoary internet files and downloaded programmes all files for the day but on restarting the pc it repeats.
Can any one help!!
