    don't you have a broadband modem? if so just turn it off, and then turn it on when you do things.

    Now if it always is on and going through LAN, and IE says open page to connect to the internet, your always on the internet then. You can set windows to not automatically have lan, but i find turning your modem off better, that is if you have only one computer connected to the modem.

    RIGHT BEHIND YOU! Scary, huh?
    If those are the things you want him to like it for, he may as well just use SlimBrowser (like me), a tabbed browser with built-in pop-up blocker that runs offa the IE kernel.

    Get the Tabbrowser Extentions extention for FireFox :) It makes it even better. All I need is something good that I can use the scroll wheel to switch tabs (there is one extention like that, but it opens a little menu until you select the one you want instead of actually switching the tabs :()

    glad to hear you're all into this fine browser, I've been loving it since this version was released.

    having a few problems at the moment tho, seems that since I installed blackbox (4win) none of the plugins or themes will install... will have to reinstall it, or maybe try removing blackbox... ho hum

    it does rock tho
