    I use Mozilla /Firefox with adblock plus plug-in. No ads...no pop ups.

    Sorry man! Think I would rather a root canal (if I had teeth), or an IRS audit.

    I realize you are not running IE anymore and this forum is not IE friendly, BUT...... I learned a little word that saved my butt here. Its not working as well as it did in the begining now, but its does work some operations.

    Compatibility Mode

    Its normally located next to the refresh button at the top of your browser.

    Just passing that along for other die hard IE users that have a problem here.

    Again Sorry to hear of your malady Dave, Hope it gets all better soon.

    I feel your pain. Computers are great except when they aren't.

    Dave, about a month ago I had the same problem...not only with IE but with FireFox as well. I had been infected with some malware bug and it was in control. I can highly recommend the malwarebyte removal program. One version is free but the version that does continuous checking is only $24 bucks a year and it keeps blocking suspect shit that tries to worm in. I am not a sponsor or anything, just had excellent results with it. Now pop up free.....
