    As soon as I access a site through my IE Browser, I receive the following PopUp from Spyware Guard - the popup comes in pairs!

    An attempt to change Internet Explorer settings has been detected.
    Option: Restore Old Value or Keep New Value.

    If I restore the Old Value or Keep the New Value, I still get the same popup! How can I reset or delete this annoyanceo_O Help! And thanks!

    Could I suggest deleting that site from your favorites,
    or at least add that site to your Restricted sites.
    Personally, if I run into a site that tries to install, or change
    "MY" settings, they don't get another chance.
