Helen

What browser are you using, and what version of that browser?

Help / About from the toolbar should tell you.

I have the Google toolbar which allows me to search direct from the toolbar, and also blocks pop-ups.

I would not touch the google toolbar with a bargepole and resist all attempts to add it to my browser. If you have Firefox 3.5 then you don't need it and it takes up valuable space. Firefox has numerous add-ons that enable you to block adverts, pop-ups and unwanted flash files seamlessly and is a more accurate browser than any version of Internet Explorer. I write my own CSS (cascading style sheets) and the non-conformance of IE to the universal standards is a pain.

Well, if you did helen it won't matter, because you can take your pig's ear, add a pair of Ls and make an aspergill to spread holy water everywhere.
