Hi there, Seems alot of people have had problems with this nuisance. I'll follow the advice posted in this thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html and post the results here. Hmm I've got an issue because some of the various programs (anti-spyware programs, firewalls) don't support Win ME. Is there another solution apart from those suggested in the other threads? Thanks in advance.
