Hi Again

These things that appear are really annoying. I know 'cos I have one advertising a less than desirable site. I don't know how they occur but I've read that they are spyware and the thing you need id a program called "spybot"

Ta! I pasted the web address but it didn't work.
Must be the wrong type of paste. I'll use a Pritt Stick in future.!!!
