Ive used SWB for several months and told a friend about it so I installed it on his computer about a month ago. Worked fine; thanks. Tonight I d/ld and installed the new version on his computer. When it loaded, it showed a list of spyware in black with checked boxes - already protected, right? Below that was a list of cookies in red with unchecked boxes - unprotected, right? I clicked select all and protect - no problem. Now the problem - when I opened internet explorer it would not connect to the server. I tried unprotecting the cookies, which didn't help and neither did changing connection settings. So I clicked select all and unprotect then uninstalled SWB. After that I could connect to the net. I didn't have time to try another install and connecting without making any changes, so I thought I would send off this quick note ( which is becoming pretty long, lol) so I'll be better armed to attack it tomorrow night. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
