    I'm in a bit of a fix right now. My email has been trying to send a message for hours now and I don't know how to stop it. It is really bogging down my computer. Any help would be appreciated!

    You should also check to see if you have a Virus or a worm in your computer.

    This is not normal behavior for a computer.

    That is what a computer does that has been hijacked by one of the above. I'm not saying that this is the case, but I would certainly check out the possibilities if it were my computer.

    Don't know which programs you should use to check it, but I'm sure one of our resident experts will be along shortly and let you know.

    Good luck!

    Hauxfan!

    Hauxfan,

    I have some good anti-virus software that takes care of things. I have a dial-up connection and whenever I try to send one too many photo's it just goes nuts. I really need to get a high-speed hook up one of these days.

    Gordy,

    I may be in the minority, but I don't look at those kind of websites. I have good enough at home! That being said, I do have as my screen saver a well endowed blonde with her top off. He wanted to show me how good of a party I missed at the lake!

    Take care y'all and thanks for the help.

    ec90t, your dialup is timing out as you try to send multiple emails. Now it goes into a loop to send the emails until there gone.


    Good luck...Jerbear
