Can you provide more details, including the operating system, Word version, etc.? Also, which search bar are you referring to - MS Internet Explorer? (If so, which version?)

What "weird things" are being typed there?

Help us to help you...
Ralf

When did you run your last virus/worm check? Jan 20, 2004

Hi Hassnein,
From what you describe, this could by a virus or worm - but I cannot be certain about it.

Assuming that you are using antivirus software:

- When did you last update your virus definitions?

- When did you last test your system for viruses/worms?

Regards, Ralf
