    I don't know if AdWare has repaired anything on your system but I haven't done a thing in the way of fixes on my system (because I don't know how) and my situation has almost completely cleared up. So obviously the Administrator is fixing it.

    It certainly was very authentic-looking. The only reason I wasn't fooled by it is the very bad experience I once had with a similar situation. I downloaded a spoof that caused a virus infection so bad my entire system had to be wiped out and reloaded. I lost a lot of important word-processor files.

    That was a lesson hard-learned.

    Step 1: have friend lift up computer.

    Step 2: wrap huge condom all around computer.

    Step 3: place computer back on computer desk.

    No doubt about that. The problems I've had occur nowhere else.

    Conduit hit me with "TROVI" this round; I picked up CONDUIT from anpther site a few weeks ago. I never see requests for money, it just takes over.

    I understand that. I said I was about to suggest -- "was" means past tense. I was, until I saw that others were reporting similar things. So I simply posted the absence of any such manifestations on my end and described what I'm using, so that a comparison might indicate what was different. Not rocket surgery.

    I read that it's been fixed but whatever it was, I never saw it at all.
