I finally succumbed and paid for SpyBlocker. I configured the PAC file so that I could use The Proxomitron and JAP, and all appears okay - Proxo's log window shows HTML racing through, and JAP's byte counters increments rapidly. Bug SB's stats remain at zero, even after visiting Yahoo! and MSN! Weird... Question: in IE's settings (use automatic cofig script) I have that set for SB's PACfile - but it's replaced the previous entry for MailWasher. D@mn, does this mean I can't use MailWasher anymore, or is there a way of chaining these? Any help appreciated.
