    I don't know what's going on but TWO times today I've had IE flip out and start to try to install something... a couple times IE crashed saying something about "We have shut IE down to keep from compromising your system" or something. Once it seemed to be related to a popup. Is one of the ads gone amuck or something? This is a BRAND new install on this machine and I'm an IT person by trade. I'm now running firefox in lockdown mode until I know what's up, but I'm more than a little concerned here. Anyone else seeing this? I suppose it's possible it's me, but...

    Ok so i am to assume you know little about computers. (sorry i'm an anti IT)

    I Imagen that TPF is running bad behavior or something of the sort which should deter this. It is posible that some one i coding malishus code in there posts.

    Mostly if you run anything other than IE you should be fine. (IE has to many securety problems to be run as a web browser.

    UPDATE: You should also be running some sort of anti virus if on windows
