Hi folks,

Can someone help please. Over the last few days what appears to be an 
advertisment keeps interfering by coming onto my screen when I try to go onto 
any web page that I choose to surf. Jaws says New browser window, followed by 
Bullseye network offer. But when my wife looks at the screen it appears to be 
blank, although she thinks the information on the page has been blocked by my 
Norton personal firewall. But what I want to know is if it blocks all the info 
on the page why has it allowed the page to come in at all?

It's interfering with every website that I enter onto, and I am forever doing 
alt+F4 each time this happens, it is very annoying and frustrating.

My wife says the header line says Oas-central.realmedia.com but jaws just says 
bullseye network offer and nothing else.

I use Jaws 4.51 with X P Home. I have Norton Internet Security 2004 installed 
on my system, which includes a personal firewall and anti virus programs.

My wife says that on the Internet Security options page all protective options 
are checked including "detect intrusion"or something like that.

This has only started occuring two or three days ago.

The only thing I can think of which I have done different about this time, is 
that I have downloaded an E Book from Project Guttenberg in M P 3 format into 
My Documents. Could that have something to do with it?

I just don't know, as I am not proficient enough to understand these 

If someone can help I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks for any help,

Michael Brown.
