How do I resolve this problem. I'm using windows XP with internet explorer 6.

Example sites are 'Mailwasher' pro upgrade, 'Cybersitter' download, 'NetNany' download and many more. No parasites and no pop-up stoppers. I have Zone Alarm installed with firewall.

Sorry, but without a direct answer to the question, I must pass this one up. I hope you understand.

Best of luck finding it.
