[macvoiceover] Re: Safari unusable! Help, tips?

Dear Nicole,
I am using SL also.  I have never had the problem you have encountered.  It may 
be a plug-in, or cookie that was placed in your computer, when you originally 
went to the web site.  I suggest you go to Safari  Preferences and go to the 
General Tab and look to see the URL of your home page.  Confirm that this is 
what you want.  If the Home Page URL is OK, go to the Security Tab.  Here I 
would go through the check boxes alternatively turning off each of them.  When 
you turn one off, open up Safari and see if the advertisement still appears.    
You will then have to do some  detective work in plug ins or cookies  to see  
delete the offending  item.

I hope this helps.
Robert
