    Both really good links Bob and XPS. Thank you.
    Hi and ta, Bill. Have given Sandoxie a small run but removed it durring a clean up before I really tried it out. Think I had some trouble understanding it from memory although as I said I really did'nt sit down and go through it. Whats it do again ?

    Hey, I installed Zone Alarm and CC Cleaner like you guy's suggested and now Zone Alarm keeps asking me to authorize PC Client. Has that something to do with either program ?
