Hi Gimpy, I think you are right about the Java scripts. Lots of times the pages and banners are pop-unders I have not tried Linux, but I think Ron did a couple of years back. I'm sure others will speak up who have experience with it. Mike *********** REPLY SEPARATOR *********** On 04/05/2003 at 9:26 PM gimpy wrote: Hi Mike, Thanks for the reply. I usually surf with all java turned off, this seems to stop pop-ups. When researching cars, I had to turn on java to get some pages to load, all the pages I saw had to do with cars, there were no pages that only had to do with ads, interest, insurance etc., This is my first time to use I E Explorer, just getting used to it. BTW, My newer computer broke. When I get it fixed, I will be back to using Mandrake, Was using Mandrake 8.1, Anyone have any comments about 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, 9.1??? I usually only use the computer for plain text mail, listen to 1 radio show, and do research when I want to learn about a something.
