Your PC may be infected with ad/spyware. Download & install Adaware, Spybot-S&D & run scans with them. To download - Adaware - click here - Spybot-S&D - click here. Also get SpywareBlaster -click here which blocks scum in real time as you surf. l . All the programs are freeware. Remember to check for UPDATES regularly & BEFORE scanning for the first time.

Thanks Crossbow - I already have Adaware but have not run it for some time - will do it now and see if it resolves it (will also download the soywareblaster as suggested)

thanks crossbow - just finished with adaware and delted the 140 objects found and runtime error seems to have been resolved

No problem. Don't forget to install SpywareBlaster. You'll be surprised at it's effectiveness at keeping most scum at bay. As I said earlier, keep scanning & checking for updates regularly for all these programs.

PS - some folks may also suggest having Spybot too, as it sometimes finds stuff that Adaware misses.
