I get online, using Microsoft explorer.  I go to a website. I go to
another website.  After a couple of seconds, of its own accord, the
page goes back to the previous website.

Or I can be typing a message in my email program, happily typing away,
and after 5 minutes, without me doing anything, there's a click and the
page goes back to the previous page, and I lose everything I've done.

Also, the copy/paste buttons work funny. I can copy something using the
[ctrl] c, but when I try to paste it, it's always the *previous item
that I had cut that gets pasted. But, if I go up to the toolbar and use
the mouse to choose cut and paste, then it works.

I'm sure it's some kind of setting that I've got to change - although
why such a setting would exist is beyond me....but where is it, where
do I find it, how do I change it?

Thanks for any help.
