First off,thank you for responding to my thread.
Actually,I *had* deleted all my cookies and temporary internet files prior to this problem,and I even thought that maybe that might even be the reason why I keep getting the Find All Files box. I had downloaded a free virus scanner (Pandasoftware),and did an online scan--no viruses found.I'm pretty sure no other programs were running at the time.I even logged off the Internet during the latter part of the scan.
Here's some backgrounder--I don't know if it has anything to do with my current problem. Thanksgiving I spilled less than a teaspoonful of coffee in the corner of my laptop's keyboard.I unplugged it probably 5 mins.after,which might have been too late.The only thing that was affected were a few keys--the right arrow,exclamation point and a few others.Some keys,when pressed typed letters stuck together,and that's still the case today.I have an old Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 series laptop that was purchased around 1997.It's not mine,but I know that $600 was spent on it in repairs ages ago.It's probably not even worth $70 today.Anyhow,the power indicator now glows orange instead of yellow and the owner's manual does not tell me what problem this indicates. I have always kept the laptop plugged in,and I think it was plugged in during a power surge,and I don't know if that did any damage or not.
I also noticed that before these multiplying Find All Files boxes kept popping up,I had tried to delete a Juno toolbar from my browser.
I will try the spyware program next chance I get.It's really tough getting online because I have to struggle with the $#@% Find All Files boxes popping up spontaneously,or when I try typing in a username or password in a box.I have to restart my computer several times and close these boxes like crazy before I can access email or other sites where I have to log in.
