Thanks Margaret - I'll plan to get it checked out on Monday and in the
meantime run a scan.  Doesn't sound quite right though - there is no prompt
to hit OK - just to Install or to Cancel and I'm hitting cancel every time.
Also, it was fine when I switched it off before my trip and it was shut down
and unplugged the whole time I was away and then did this first time I fired
it up when I returned.  Not impossible for a virus to have hit it at exactly
that time, but odd, all the same.  Darn it - these things always happen when
my DH is away on business.  I'm not a total clot with computers but Mark's
way better so I just let him get on with it.
