I found out that I should have some sort of content filter on my system. It came down to Naviscope and Proxomitron. Since Proxomitron has a fair learning curve, I decided on the former. Every so often, my system would freeze whenever I try to launch the e-mail client (Outlook Express) while connected. I would have to reboot to get it going again. When I uninstalled Naviscope the problem went away. Has anyone experienced the same or something similar? I would like to stay with Naviscope, since it did speed up my surfing somewhat. I am running on PII 233 with 128 Mb RAM, Win98 SE, with AVG and Kerio running resident. Thanks in advance.
