I get this text file (HTTPBlock_trace.txt) appearing on my desktop everytime I open my browser. If I leav it there it fills up with lines like this:
1: BlockHTTP.cpp: 75: HTTPBlock DLL got loaded
1: BlockHTTP.cpp: 75: HTTPBlock DLL got loaded
1: BlockHTTP.cpp: 75: HTTPBlock DLL got loaded

Each time I open a bowser window a new line is created.

Any ideas what this is? How do I stop it or fix it?

Yes. I have three sites on one server using Apache. Why would this have an affect on my local machine?

You're running apache on this machine, or another?

If another, is your desktop shared, and is apache set to log blocks, and perhaps deposit the log to your desktop?

Who set this up?

Well, yes I do and thanks for the help. That is the problem. It's odd that they would not know about this before releasing their software. It is also strange that there is another thread on this forum about the exact same topic but when I did a search I found no reference to it. I found it today just by chance.

Thanks for your help.
