Thanks OSO. I didn't think you would ever allow popups. Thought maybe there was some kind of contest going on I might have missed.

And I regularly scan my computor for spyware and add ware. Just did it earlier this week... maybe I'll do it again!

Thanks everyone.

There are some free download programs that are available. Search under the off topic section. I just had a thread on this bs a couple of weeks ago. The thread was titled "Hijacked" and I was the author.

I use spybot to scan my computer. If you run a search on it, I'm sure you'll find a free download.

OK, just read about spybot, looks like you can choose to destroy them after the scan, the one I had I couldnt figure out how to do that.
