  1. XP Pro, latest Firefox

    This is what I get when I try to enter the iTunes Download page.

    http://144.73.232.177:15871/ cgi-bin/blockpage.cgi?ws-session=2407674641

    It doesn't show the whole entry in the posting, if you click on it
    it'll probly show the whole thing. Basically after the "cgi-bin/
    it shows "blockpage.cgi?ws-session= - - - "

    I've tried shutting off all my security apps, no change.

    I've gone into Tools and entered / allowed that site for everything I
    can find, still no go.

    Sure appreciate some help!

    EDIT - some searching revealed problems using Firefox and XP Pro sp2
    to download iTunes.

    So, installed Safari to try to download iTunes. Still get the same
    message as above - says the server isn't responding. ????

    I would suggest your browser has been hijacked and is redirecting you into
    lala land. DO NOT LOGIN to any bank account or provide your SSN until you can
    prove your system is clean.

    Start this process ...
