After I installed my spyware killer apps (spyware blaster, spybot and MS's
newest beta), I can't get to Iwon.com -
I get this message:
Right now, your browser's settings are configured to disable cookies and/or
javascript. In order to access your account, you must change your browser's
settings to accept both cookies AND javascript.

I went into the settings and enabled ActiveScript - (javascript - right?)
I also overrode the default cookie settings and chose to accept cookies and
Session cookies...

Still nothing - - same error.

any ideas?

Actually it should be the Microsoft VM - not ActiveScript. Or the Sun

No. He said JavaScript. Microsoft VM is an obsolete Java engine. Java has
nothing to do with JavaScript, despite the names.

All about spyware
When you go online, don't assume that your privacy is secure. Prying eyes often follow your activity-and your personal information-with a pervasive form of malicious software called spyware. In fact, it's one of the oldest and most widespread threats on the Internet, secretly infecting your computerwithout permission in order to initiate a variety of illegal activities.

Spyware. Although it sounds like a James Bond gadget, it’s actuallya generic term for malicious software that infects your PC or mobile device and gathers information about you, your browsing and Internet usage habits, as well as other data.

You might have even inadvertently given permission for the spyware to install itself when you agree to the terms and conditions of a seemingly legitimate program you downloaded without reading the fine print.

But no matter how spyware invades your PC, it runs quietly in the background, collecting information or monitoring your activities in order to triggermalicious activities related to your computer and how you use it. That includes capturing keystrokes, screen shots, authentication credentials, personal email addresses, web form data, Internet usage information, and other personal information, such as credit card numbers.
