    since an or Vista 32 professional update a month ago I can't print e mails
    off WinMail. I have tried fiddling with IE including resetting it (Internet
    Options, Advanced, Reset) but no luck; and disabling antivirus doesn't work.


    The IE problem is that it wont open many pages, even safe omnes like
    http://www.windowsupdate.com/ or http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/... just
    get a white page.

    Somehow they're connected: any ideas? Thanks

    Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
    to an appropriate forum.

    When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
    (http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
    conjuction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
    its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
    hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to

    http://castlecops.com/forum67.html, or other appropriate forums for review
    by an expert in such matters, not here.**

    If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
    isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.
