(Note: please read through, since it HAS A LOT TO DO with Lavasoft!)
I recently installed Opera 8.01, and by default, every time upon startup it picks up where you left last time you exited. It looks like a great feature... except when I tried opening a pop-up that got blocked, Opera just shut down and did so every time I tried to restart it. I uninstalled and re-installed Opera, and then I tried using their searchbar - one of the options is to search on eBay. Guess what... same thing happened. (Luckily, I tampered with the preferences so I won't fall into the same pit again.) I asked around, full of frustration, until someone told me to check my firewall. Norton AntiVirus did not indicate any connection, and then I disabled the Ad-Watch monitoring. "...and they lived happily ever after" - well, maybe not that, but same predictable plot: problem solved. Since I don't want to lose the great value I gain with Ad-Watch, someone please tell me what to do (except for deleting the specific address from the blocked URL list, since new ones are to come for sure). Thanks in advance!
