Thanks, I'll try those.
Modem or whatever it's called - it's DSL. He He - got tired of waiting forever for a regular modem phone line to load. Out here most cannot get DSL, too remote, but we are right down the street from a big phone station. Thinking about going satellite, the only TV we can get is satellite.
Being so remote has some disadvantages like no sewer, no gas, 12 miles to town, but we do have electricity and water - and a paved road! But I love it! No neighbors close either.
I'm not very computer literate as you can no doubt tell.
AVG Free was recommended by my local computer shop, it's only found cookies - lots of them. After using the Free, I went ahead and bought the full program. It supposedly checks more, but still hasn't found anything but cookies.
Thanks again, Rich
