To know if it is machine specific or just user specific, you must create a new temporary user and test with that new user.
If it does not produce the same effect it is something hidden in your user folder.
Also, it is best practice to create at least 2 users when setting up a new computer. The first one is an administrator, the second one and eventually other users as standard users.
Use the standard user for everyday tasks.
Thanks for the tip... Can't see a Macromedia file in my Library at all.
The only Macromedia file i can locate is in a Dreamweaver CS3 application folder (macromedia.tix).
Also have in applications Adobe Flash CS3 and Adobe Flash CS3 Video Encoder.
None of these have been updated for some time (well, CS3!!)
Thanks for your help guys - much appreciated!
Ok - tracked the little blighter down!
It seems to be reffered to as 'text enhanced spyware' - found a couple of browser extensions lurking in my browser preferences - deleted them and the issue seems to have disappeared.
roam - still can't find that Macromedia file
Is this something I should be worried about?
Anyway - cheers for now - and thanks again for taking the time out!
