    Dell support evidently will not help with spyware problems:

    ;) Could try disabling Automatic Redirection in the browser?? :D

    But then you'd probably just get a blank page. LOL

    The fact that they won't let you read their new policy is probably because they are reconsidering their position. I wonder if their stock has dropped?? Has anyone checked? ;)

    'Got same on first attempt, but the "redirect" allowed me in to the URL sought after making a few preliminary selections regarding type of user and PC, i.e.: Home or Home based small business...'must be using some "cookie-magic" in there (my guess). ;)

    hmm...

    Well, I guess I must admit that if I was engaging in such activities I wouldn't want to make it easy for anyone to read about it either :rolleyes:
