Thanks, both of you, for your help. I am now certain that I downloaded a bogus version because my system started freezing up soon after my two aborted attempts to watch the stupid thing lol This has been my first foray into movie download territory and after spending this rainy day debugging my computer instead of cozying up beside the fire with a good movie in my lap, it will probably be my last. I realize now that I should have looked beyond the download button when I found the movie, but I had no idea that I could be the target of malicious software...duh! LOL
I am sure bitcomet is a wonderful resource as well as an excellent school of hard knocks for the newbie, and THIS newbie learned alot today!
What I am taking away from this experience after (finally) removing the offending video and the cursed Cometbird browser(how THAT snuck onboard, I have no idea!), and now that my computer is finally acting normally again, I will seriously reconsider the upside of driving the 20 miles to the movie theatre and spending the $30 bucks to watch the d*** thing from now on! LOL
Thanks again, guys :o)
