Oooo, I got a new best friend :wink:

Gale17, you wouldn't guess where I got the instructions to disable content advisor.

As I also say, when in doubt google it.

too bad i still can't use google....

seriously though... you should see my paranoia. I can't believe i can just click on what i want without any weird freaky stuff first. haha... whenever i used to accidently close the window i'd curse and be mad cause i'd have to jump through so many loops again. But now, i just click and its back open. Its amazing. I can't believe it. I keep thinking my computer is gonna freeze on me.

I just showed my sister. She jumped up and down and got all excited. Honestly, this is such a big deal. Oh my god i love you.

Well, you can always switch to Linux if you continue to have problems with Microsoft.

Linux is the fastest growing operating system in the world. Just recently SUSE linux out sold the new Apple OS X 10.3 Panther on amazon UK.

check out my desktop

Linux is also a lot more stable, secure and faster. You don't even need an antivirus it is so good..

I use Google most of the time.

But to have different info I use: http://alltheweb.com/

I believe both receive most of their links from 'the open directory project' (http://dmoz.org/). When you have a webpage just put it on http://dmoz.org/ and soon almost all search engines will display your page.
