I forgot to mention that I had Yahoo messenger running too. I usually do because I didn't figure out till just now how to exit it. Beforehand, I thought there was no way to have it installed without it running virtually nonstop while the computer is on and the Internet connection working. I will try to have this thing running less often; maybe it will help some.
