    Man do I need some help here. I've been having a problem with an error message and it's really making me angry.

    As I load a page, sometimes where an ad is supposed to be, I am getting "Action Cancelled" display. Now normally I would just ignore this. However, I play Hamerhead Pool on Pogo and need this error to go away so I can play it. No settings have been changed, security is low, I can accept cookies and still keep getting this. It happens on other pages as well.

    Any ideas? Please let me know what you think. Thanks

    Are you using any ad or pop-up blocking software? Do you have a firewall or antivirus which includes filtering functions for ads, pop-ups or active x scripts?

    Sometimes this error is caused by an attempt to set an illegal cookie; if that's the case I'm not sure what you can do about it, it's the web hosts problem. An illegal cookie is one that references a domain that is not the site domain you are actually on.

    Anyway, have a gander at the problems and fixes suggested here:

    http://groups.google.com/groups?q=p...lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&newwindow=1&sa=N&tab=wg

    By the way your HOSTS file will be found in this location:

    Windows NT/2000/XP Pro_ c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    feel free to rename or just delete it.
