    Who is burstnet.com? Whenever i click the back button it says connecting to burstnet.com/cgi-bin....... and it doesn't acually go back a page it site there. i click back again and it does the same thing. only on the 3rd try does the browser go back. It is very frustrating. is it a virus or spyware or something?

    Its part of the sponsoring.
    It counts the visits.

    Just use the little drop-down arrow next to the back button,
    and go back prior to the burstnet counting.

    On mine i usually have to go back three places.

    I used a computer, win98, that had your problem with BURSTNET, only on this pc it would get locked in the Burstnet page and you couldn't go back at all, the normal page in Tech Guy would start loading and then maybe at the 75% load point Burstnet would take over completely, the trick was to click on "stop" at the right moment just before Burstnet loaded and then you could view the page, it was frustrating........

    Since it only happened on that specific computer I never tried to resolve that, but maybe you could try and block it using your "hosts" file, let the page load for burstnet, copy it's URL and paste in your hosts file, and loop it back to your pc.......
