It appears to be a specific problem with my theme although the WP before 3.4.1 did not have this issue. I am using the WOO themes and I have contacted them as well. The other WOO themes do not have this problem but I did not update them thus far.
With respect to your suggestions, I do appreciate that you were kind enough to respond. However, I am not a technical person and I have been using WP because for most part it is problem free.
I read the post that you suggested even before I asked this question.
So, although I am sincerely grateful for your answer, I have absolutely no clue how to fix it or even to begin with re-uploading all files and folders from a fresh download of WP. I truly don't know what you mean.
Sorry for being such a noob
