Unable to do the copy and paste but have HP pavilion . For a couple of weeks when I click to leave a site sometimes a box comes up " Are you sure you want to leave this site" . We are all used to this however this one is different , under the question "Are You Sure ...." comes the word false in small print and at that point the computer will do nothing even if I click on yes or no . Then the computer must be shut down without going thru the proper procedures . This must be some kind of virus .

I don't think this is a virus. It could be, but let's try some other troubleshooting before going the virus route.

I'm assuming this only happens in a browser. If not, please let me know. Please answer the following questions.
1. What browser are you using?
2. Have you tried a different browser?
3. What's the model number of your HP Pavilion?
4. What operating system are you running?

The first thing I would do is try another browser. The reasoning is because it will help us narrow down the issue. If it happens in another browser, it's something with the system. If it only happens in IE, than it's IE. Here is Firefox and Chrome. I prefer FF, but Chrome is very popular as well.
