    What's Going On?

    When opening forum, a new format shows with no pics and only partial to pice to view with hard to read threads. They all have a fish skeleton attached too. I've re- booted to no avail. What should I do next?

    I read/think about fishing a lot more than I get to fish - so it goes.

    Two solutions (I use both).
    Assuming you use Windows.

    Google "Microsoft malicious software removal tool" and download and apply that tool. Make sure you download it from Microsoft, not a third party. It takes a while to run a complete scan, if you are in a hurry you can do a quick scan and see if that helps, but eventually do a full scan (3 hours on my computer).

    Get rid of whatever it finds by clicking that button after it runs (I forget the exact lingo).

    Download Malwarebytes free version and use it to scan. Same as Microsoft there is a quick scan and full scan. Quick scan will get most bugs.

    I use both, but most folks say just the Microsoft is enough. Be sure you have all the Microsoft defense software going when you surf the web and be VERY careful about clicking on links in emails.

    Sorry fellow fisher persons, but due to a jumbled format for me on this site, I will no longer be able to view or post anything further unless I get to someone else's device.

    Go to bottom of main page and look for a format option....this happened to me on another and like you finally gave up viewing till maybe a year later I found the option at the bottom of the page and it all went back to what I was use to....

    Thanks Bill, but that option doesn't appear for me. Screen is all jumbled with no pics and words written over the top of each other and not readable...

    I'm sorry. My advice was for a computer. I know nothing of iPads.
