Girlfriends comp seems to be borked.
She's on dial-up and when IE tries to load web page, the lower address at bottom of page keeps looping like the picture shows.

She thinks she has blaster virus but it virus scanners show nothing.

Other examples were:

http://www.www.msn.com.org/
http://www.www.msn.org.net/

Anyone seen this before or know the prob?
Thanks

By the way, she has a new Dell that is something like 2.0 Gig CPU, and its running really, really slow.

I may actually be insane.

If internet explorer can't find a site then it will try putting www. in front of it and .net/.com/.org at the end.
This is done so that you can just type "microsoft" and IE will add the www. and .com

I would imagine that this has something to do with her DNS settings.
