Colin[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: It was something to do with www.coolweb and 180Search as I recall. I also took no chances and did a complete reload of service pack 2 of Internet Explorer 6.0. It sure was a nasty one, and what I get for allowing my nephew to peek at some 'unwholesome' web sites while he was sitting around with nothing to do Wednesday afternoon. In his case for sure, idle hands made a very good devil's workshop. But now that our business has been concluded, the funeral for his mother (my sister) has concluded, and Justin checked on employment and housing opportunities here; he is on his way back home to Florida as I clean up the mess he made of my computers. Poor Justin ... a Professor of Computer Science he won't be any time soon; but a very good hearted kid he is. I am going to run all three of those anti-virus tools I have (Grisoft, AdAware and Spybot Smash and Destroy one last time before I go to bed tonight, and I am going to begin normal operations here using the 'ptownson' account rather than the 'administrator' account in the future as well.
