Thanks everyone!

The Omega drivers seem to have worked! Question though, Why did this problem happen suddenly? It worked just fine doing the exact same things, and thenit needs new drivers? Kinda weird to me, but what the heck do I know?

It's windoze, it just happens sometimes. Perhaps something you recently installed simply overrode a .dll with the same name?

Make sure you have installed recent anti-virus software/anti-spyware software as some websites working with IE and it's standard configuration actually allows the "drive-by downloads" that was causing the problems.

Now that you installed 3rd party drivers, how are the Toshiba Controls working? You know, screen brightness and screen powersafe functions?

Honestly I dont know. It does seem to be running a bit quicker, and the graphics do seem to be a tad sharper, but it may just be a placebo effect..............

Havent messed with any settings, its working great as is!
