Apologies for interjecting, and in the wrong thread at that, but the forum won't let me reply to your thread. Not suprising though as I have been having the same kinds of issues as yours. The problem here is SPYWARE TERMINATOR, one giant piece of #@!$!%^!$^#$~!#@@#~!% spyware program. For any of you techies wanting to argue with me to assert your intellectual superiority just go ahead and install it : . Sir, be prepared to spend some money on your security next time, or reformat your hard drive, or both!
