Thanks for the thought. I was not intending to express

Hansen, who with a bit of whimsy (or was that sarcasm?) put
that question mark at the end of his posting. I interpreted
that to mean just because (Beener) did not experience this
with Avast and Seamonkey, it could not be a problem with
either of them. That's what I meant by anecdotal, i. e., one
person's experience, which while empirical, is not scientific.
This is not fair. Some problems have been experienced by several users,
so it is possible to better assess their causes. In the case of a
problem like yours, it sounds logical to go to what appears to be the
most probable causes first. Then, if the problem is not solved, people
have to make educated guesses, try to get more precise information from
the poster who sometimes feels offended. But often, useful info comes
from facts the OP in good faith, did not think he should have mentionend.

Since I'm using Avast 4.8 SM 1.1.14 and Windows 5.1 (XP-Pro) Service
Pack 3 also and having none of the above programs, I would look
elsewhere for a solution. It's not a Avast or SeaMonkey problem.
Since you're using SeaMonkey and don't see the problem, it can't be a
problem with SeaMonkey?
Right. That's what I meant by "anecdotal." If it does not happen to
you, it can't be happening to anyone else. Very poor science and
illogical. Mr. Spock would be disappointed.
And in other cases, we have to hope the answer will come from unexpected
Nothing to get offended about.
