Well, I'm glad it was not a wide-ranging problem. Seems, as you suggested, Murray, in the comments from the previous post, that what was needed was a industrial-strength pop-up blocker, and that is now what I've got operating on this end. Thanks to everybody (Doug, Jonas, Sharon & Murray) who helped me suss out and fix this annoyance. Now I just wish there were pop-up blockers to apply to non-virtual-world-type problems as well!
Top Ten List, and some attendant goodies attached to it, is just around the corner!
