Thanks everyone for your replies.
MaG, I always check the box to delete all temporary internet files when I disconnect from the internet. Then, when I'm back to my desktop, I manually delete all cookies from the 2 folders in XP.
Homer 6, I agree about not messing with scripts - I wouldn't know what I was doing. Thanks for the link - I couldn't find a topic that was about IE.
As far as IE6 is concerned, I've never had a security problem with it. In all the years I've had an internet connection I've never been "hacked" in any way and not once have I had a virus or malware of any kind.
Again, thanks everyone. If you think of anything else, please let me know.
