When you're surfing and a window pops up saying some crap about authentication "Yes" or "No", CHOOSE NO!

I dunno what browser you're using, but since I upgraded to IE6, I've never had that problem. Used to get it before, though.

Hmmmm I am on IE6 they come out with a newer version?

Not that I'm aware of. I'm using 6.0.2600.0000 xp client 128 bit encryption.
The other thing that might be different, is that my home page is one on my computer, not somewhere on the 'net.
