    Ironic it was a complete Redwings page to showcase Akiva's SportsfanFare offerings with text on Redwings history and NHL Stars and PSC displays. I'll have to learn to save and then add to pages as the Ad Whores, called BHO affiliates and their desperate sleezebags lead fee brethern do their thing.

    Can I show my ignorance here ?

    When you say drive-by-install how is it getting kicked started ?

    I have always assumed that having Activex turned off in the IE options keeps one safe or am I now wrong on this count ?

    Websmith the BHO scripting perps are the same folks that bring us spam. They digest the Active-X browser shields, firewalls, anti-virus and Adware programs and shove their crap past the security fences. Name of the BHO game is mass infection which is an expertise of the Ad Whore mindset running the affiliate industry.
