Sorry, I'm kind of unsure what you mean. What are Hot Flash games?

Hot Flash Games?... I am scared

Well the TP page is replaced by some games page Which has "HOT FLASH GAMES" written accross the middle of it. I assume I have been spammed?. I then have to get rid of that and have to load TP again. Any ideas?

I meant to say I have Norton Anti Virus loaded which is active.

Obviously, your PC is infected with spywares - those of a hijacking nature. Norton AntiVirus is active but is it updated with the latest patch? In the past, i too had my PC infected even after installing those established antivirus softwares. Mistaken being, i got complacent and didnt update them. Try running a scan.

Sounds like you are infected with some adware / spyware. Why it only happens with TP, I couldn't say, but it sounds like your system needs a serious clean out to get rid of this thing. Think re-install.

And while you're at it, install Firefox as your web browser to help avoid such problems in the future.

Sorry to hear about the trouble..

Cheers, I do scan from time to time even though Norton is live. I guess I need to check out Firefox.

If you are looking for a good and free spyware remover, check out Spybot Search and Destory. No charge, though they do accept donations if you like what you see.

Norton Antivirus does not fix spyware or malware or registery problems I HIGHLY suggest the following:

Spybot Search and Destroy (FREE)
Registry Mechanic
AVG Anti Virus (FREE)
Ad-Aware (FREE)

That is a good start, there are some other really good programs that are not free, but are good to have...

Xosftspy
RegistryFix

The thing a person should do is run their virus scanner, then their spybot scanner, and then there registry fixer... and then their spybot scanner again. After that uninstall all of the other crap you don't use, then de-fragment your harddrive and do a disk clean up.

After that your computer will run as though you just bought it.
