    Housecall is an excellent online virus checker. I've used it many times.

    Well, MR MAYOR - we can plainly see that Wizard was referring ZAnwar to housecall - however, unless we actually looked at your "here" we would not have known that "here" was in fact housecall.

    Get my drift????
    :D :D :D :D

    That's why you look. ;) Hover over the "link" and it tells you in the "status" bar.

    Get my drift????:p

    Okay Mr MAYOR

    Make me smarter so that I can learn something today - when I "hover" over the "here", the "this" or a "link" all I get is the item turning red and the Index fingered hand!

    Where's the "status" bar you are talking about?

    Am I missing something here - do I have something set up wrong???

    Not trying to give ya a hard time - help me out!!!

    No problem. At the bottom of your browser. You may not have it on. Under View->Status bar.

    No problem damnyank. I find it helpful when I am surfing and you come across one of those sites that says "click here" to continue. I check to see where "here" is. :)
