    A new experience this evening. During some heavy surfing, as well as my active programs buttons, there were 4 more little "about blank" buttons on the task bar, and they could not be closed by any means, except finally, by Restart.

    Their appearance was preceded or accompanied by "malicious script" attacks that Norton (hopefully) quarantined or deleted.

    Everything looks normal now, so I hope I am unscathed.

    When was the last time you ran Spybot and Ad-Aware?

    I run both regularly now, can't afford not to anymore.
