IE/Microsoft Windows is banished from my business (for their frequent
security flaws).  Removing the libnull plug-in from my present Mozilla
install seems to stop the pop-ups from sites without adverse affects
I am told.

My idea was to be able to check customers websites for non-standard
embedded content (which could be replaced with a link instead etc).
Using grep is my present solution offline.

Regards
