    I'm using "Firefox", and I don't have problems with either item.

    Since IE is also causing you problems, I'd check ZoneAlarm.

    found it, for this specific site, i have to allow banner ads, and "skyscrapers" what ever that is... hope this helps someone else down the road.

    Please don't use zone alarm- it is just terrible and cuts stuff off arbitrarily. I bet at some point your internet won't run because it will cut that off too.

    While I agree ZA can be troublesome, it is far more convenient than formatting my hard disk. Especially since my work site and this site don't run at all or run poorly on Netscape and IE is insecure. I had McAfee but wasn't thrilled with that either.

    Thanks,

    Maggie

    This brings to mind an amusing parody song that my friend came up with and sent to a mailing list some years ago...

    Code:

    Well, maybe not...But at least I didn't put 'sex' in the title.
    
    Normally I put some disclaimer here about how these things are
    for humor content, and slightly relate to IRC...well this song
    doesn't necessarily relate to IRC, but I think a lot of the readers
    of operlist can appreciate the subtle humor I am trying to impart.

    Today is gonna be the day
    That I'm gonna filter all of you
    By now you should've somehow
    Realized what you gotta do
    I don't believe that anybody
    is going to be immune to this bug now
    
    Sure bet the word was on the net
    That the exploit for the bug is out
    I'm sure you've heard it all before
    But you never really had a route
    I don't believe that anybody
    is going to be immune to this bug now
    
    And all the hosts we have to trace have just poofed
    And all the packets that lead us there have been spoofed
    There are many holes that I would
    Like to patch right now
    but I don't know how
    
    Because maybe
    You're gonna be the one who saves me?
    And after all
    You're my firewall
    
    Today you thought you get away
    And they'd never trace it back to you
    By now you should've somehow
    Realized what you're not to do
    I don't believe that anybody
    is going to get through to my hosts now
    
    And all the hosts we have to trace have just poofed
    And all the packets that lead us there have been spoofed
    There are many holes that I would

    but I don't know how
     
    I said maybe
    You're gonna be the one who saves me?

    I said maybe

    I use ZoneAlarm to prevent software from reporting back to the "mothership" in addition to a hardware firewall. (router) I also use Firefox, and keep up to date with all the latest patches for these and Windows. I do not use a virus scanner, since it is very unlikely that I will ever get one. I have never gotten infected with any spy or adware.

    Prevention > Reaction
    Bring the pain.
