    In Visual Basic, how can you monitor the incoming web pages from Internet Explorer, and possibly replace and/or alter content. I've got the last part, I just need to know how to get the html into something my program can alter.

    This is out of pure curiosity, I've seen other programs do this (ie. Norton), and I'm wondering how it's done.

    What you are looking for is a screen scraper. I think you can make one with .NET, not too sure about straight VB

    Thanks, I've been trying to dive into .net, but I've been to lazy to do so. Well, there's no time like the present. :p

    Thanks again!
