If you get and use Netscape7 you can control things like that on an individual basis. In the security feature in preferences

This pop up is intended to trick you and it is working. Dont click yes...thats what your meant to do...just keep clicking no..no...no...no...no as many times as is required until it dissapears. This is a tricky and annoying piece of html code and I think you will find that after about 4 or 5 "no" clicks it will dissapear...until you visit the site again.

..but the file will still be in system32.

You are missing the point here, YOU are going to ampland NOT the "dialer" (in fact I don't believe that you HAVE a dialer). The ampland site is trying to get you to download a premium rate dialler. Easiest way out - don't visit ampland.

What file will be in system32?

Unless he downloads a piece of software there is no file of any importance. I have just been to this website and it is a standard peice of pop-up code.

Whatever you do this 'dialogue' box will appear when you go to the site in question.

Go to the site yourself and you will see what I mean.

Jack is making the same point as me...trust us...we are right.
