    You have got a Spyware problem. Read the stickies and follow the instructions and you should be fine. If you have difficulty following the instructions then ask.

    sell by date?
    I didn't know PCs went rotten! ;)

    Of course, some should be considered rotten at the factory- like emachines.....
