    Make sure you don't have any spyware or adware on your computer. works perfectly for me.

    I'm no tech guru, but......huh?

    Like jcm3 said, you probably got spyware installed on your PC somehow. Download AdAware or Spybot(or both), update them, then scan your PC. That should fix your problem.

    I’m no “tech guru” either really, but I’m required to play one at work everyday if I want to get a paycheck. ;)



    Lots of people on the boards at one time = Heavy load.

    Heavy load = Weird things happening.

    (Not saying that this is live-free-r-die’s particular problem, just that it can & does happen.)

    Michigun nailed it on the head. ^c
    Looking at live-free's post, around that time there was some Internet saturation and several forums (presumably off the same core route) were having difficulty. Tracing from my location showed that anyway. Stuff happens; gremlins. ;j

    Pacificas connectus interruptus - yep, that's around the time period things were headed south for a short while. (Note: I'm not a GT net admin, just happened to check some of this stuff from my midwest location - YMMV.) :)
    p.s. but better now so we can probably stop posting about it.

    Hi live-free-r-die,

    If you believe you may have a problem with spyware, but aren't a "techie", (I'm not!), you can get some help at this site:

    http://www.komando.com/tips_show.asp?showID=5503

    The above link takes you directly to a page with info on dealing with "Adware" or "Spyware" which may be leading to some of the problems?!? It could be entirely unrelated, (busy or gremlims....they happen)? But if you're not sure check out the link, it offers easy to understand fixes!

    Also the above links home page is of course:

    http://www.komando.com/

    Kim not only has an easily understood site, but it is full of useful information. You may have heard her on her syndicated radio show. It's a good site for those of us less initiated computer users!

    Good luck!

    Dave
