I have exhausted that path of action.  My first step was to see if the ISP 
could help me.  They could not.

Yes, originally I was on a router.  It was one of the paths that was blocked 
about the 3rd stage of new events.

First:  @Yeshua was added between senders name and their
Next after deleting the added data and resending, the dot between their server 
and com changed from '.' to '--dot--'.  Then the name of sender was sent to 
the server different from my configuration.  It remained correct in my 
configuration, so I don't know what it was changed to, but the server kept 
sending an error message that the sender was wrong and needed to be corrected.  
And lastly it started to slow mouse activity on Gmail an internet application 
I use from time to time.  Between mousclicks from 10 to 30 minutes would take 
place before the link to a new location was made.  By that I mean if I clicked 
on 'send' to see if an email was sent, I would have to wait from 10 to 30 
minutes before the action would take place.  When 30 minutes, it would time 
out three times.  I never waited longer than that.  I was only willing to make 
these long waits, because it was my only possible connection to help. 
Eventually that capability stopped working too and I could not get any signal 
to the dsl modem.

I then took my old broken laptop and monkeyed with its power switches until 
finally it came on again.  I have not shut it off for the past couple of days, 
for fear that it would not start again.  That is what happened to it before.  
But I have email on my laptop.  I am connected by cable to the dsl modem.  
Both browser and email function normally.

What does it sound like if not a virus?
