And what are you opening from the net? Because XP also prompts you when
items are downloading? I'm not sure exactly what you are describing can
you do a screen shot?
I do not mean in any way to pick on you but this "It's my computer"
attitude that you say you agree with. Every week there are adult classes
on computer training, perhaps that might be a way to make it even more
of your computer?
It's only when we understand something that it's truly ours.
