Red X

Bigmike, thanks for the info on Spyblocker, I found the help on the website.
I have a new problem. When I go to a website and there should be a picture or a diagram, all that is there is a outlined box with a little red X in a small white box. Not all are that way, just some. Am I missing a driver? I disabled Spyblocker, and Pop up Stopper, and it dosen't change anything. I am running Window's Me, AMD 950 mzh gateway, 190 ram . Thanks if you can help. Jay

More then likely the link to the image is missing, or corrupt on the websites end. Html is telling your browser that there shold be a picture there but the link to the pic is no good. Try the site later in the future and see if they have fixed the problem.

I ran into the same problem, but fixed it after removing the software and then reinstalling it without moving any of the program files. I'm a neat freak on my system and if it all doesn't end up in the folders that I want them in, I move it. If you move the files into another folder (all of them) it still won't work. I now get a bug showing on the places the ads, etc would have been. Just a glitch I guess.

Cool pop up's

Sounds to me like the software is blocking the picture extension. Does the spyblocker have a way to pick and choose what is blocked? I actually didnít recommend this software. One of the other folks did. I donít use it. I use a popup blocker that I have total control over. It is software from Analog X, he is a programmer that has built several programs for this type of thing. I do not often recommend software to use here, several months ago I recommended a product and one of the folks here tried it and it caused him major problems. Analog X software has never caused me or any of my friends that use it problems but thatís not saying that your system wonít like it. Should you like to check his stuff out go to www.analogx.com he has all types of software from checking your online connection speed to HTML editing software. I am not recommending using his programming, but I have never had a single problem out of it. The pop up stopper he offers is one that you must add the pop up to the list. It doesnít seek it out on its own. But once itís set you will not see that pop up again. Keep in mind the blocking the Windoze ďBlankĒ pop up can cause a problem. Some sites initially use the blank before it goes to a confirmation screen, like my local newspaper here when I write letter to the editor, and I do this a lot the ďIE/blankĒ screen comes up first then the window saying my letter has been accepted.

I tried SpyBlocker and it was fun to goof around with for a little while, but I don't mind the ads on the web sites, just the silly popups. I use a program called PopUpKiller that I downloaded from CNET. I prefer it since it closes all those annoying popup ads. Those are the ones that bother me since some sites will popup ads just as I'm clicking a link on the page and then I'm sent off into popup ad heaven, actually the other place. I can control which type of popups the it will kill, and if it kills a popup I need, I can put it in the exclude list.

My firewall helps to control the other spyware that tries to get into my cookies, and adaware helps find and delete those spy progs off my system when my kids install their games or educational programs. I have found that the educational programs are the worst about loading those type progs.

*Normally my children aren't allowed to load software since they don't pay attention to what they're doing or where they put the progs, just click yes to everything*

Using RegHance with the AdAware program helps keep my registry clean.
