Are you running anti-virus software that includes a mail scan like Norton, PC-cillin etc.? If so, try turning the mail scan off for a bit and see if the problem clears.

I've tried typing in the password before, and it would lock up the computer, requiring reboot. This time, entering the password solved the problem. I've contacted the local isp in the past, and all they could suggest was making sure my browser was properly updated, which it is. I get a *lot* of repeat messages right after getting on, saying the isp is locked up by another pop-3 session, and to try again later, and to enter my password even though I only got on one minute earlier using the password. I eventually learned by trial and error to just hit Enter as often as the pop-up appeared, and that would stop the problem for a few minutes, before it recurred. When it finally got so persistent last time, I added mention of it at the end of my message about updating Ad-Aware. If the problem has anything to do with running SurfinGuard Pro, or ZoneAlarm, or anything else I run...but how could it, or I couldn't get on the internet in the first place. - Users can unsubscribe from this list by sending email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1/24hrsupport.htm.
