HI Marine, maymay, all.
I have some good news. No, excellent news.
Here's the scoop.
similar problems with Yahoo!, I sought help here, talked to friends and emailed Yahoo!
Sorry for posting this problem also somewhere else on this forum
So, messing around myself due to interest, I updated my virusdefinitions.
Check! Scanned and BOOOM
..some bloodhound thing appeared really from Nowhere. Rebooted my PC.
Scanned again and BLOODHOUND.EXPLOIT.6 was still in da house!
Went from START to ALL PROGRAMS, then clicked on MS update.
For some reason it did NOT work at first.
After a few times shutting down ( when I leave home) and starting again, I noticed that MS was updating. Did not realize at first SP2 was quite a chunk to download.
SO! done that and rebooted. Scanned with updated Norton ===> Clean!
RIGHT away logged into Yahoo! ===> YESSSSS all works fine!
Since I don't trust all these systems and updates nor....MYSELF
, rebooted again and again....and ALL seems to work fine!
In my opinion (majorgeek here) it's not the browser, but the OS, supporting the browser. So IE or Firefox, sure needs an update, but first MS needs the update and a GOOD ONE TOO! Advise offered about Active X is in the right direction, so....
Anyone who knows a website to learn more about Active X and its settings, will be much appreciated.
Anyways, HOPE this helps other geeks.
Special thanks to Marinegeek59, who offered his help.
Thanks again all,
