    hmm, i'll have to give that one a try!

    Sorry for the late response... I've been visiting the state we all love and just got back home

    It wasn't on one of my regular sites. It happened on a transition move on a topic from a blog to a link.

    I installed a PC Tools Spyware Doctor for a XP. But, it was after I was infected. So now, loggin on takes awhile.
