      yeah and its not working .... 

      I basically sent them questions asking about how many lower tier prizes are left and where the winners were sold. I want to know exactly so I can map out the stores i will buy tickets from. i dont want to buy a roll of a game from a store that has sold a winner of $1,000 or more on that particular game. it usually means the next rolls are cold. maybe they caught onto my tactics and decided to block me from the website ?? maybe it was because of my last email where i questioned if lottery officials have inside knowledge of locations of 'hot' rolls ?? they obviously dont want me pestering them again .....

          Maybe it's because your IP address shows that you're from ESTONIA, not from Florida.  Not even from the United States.

              Too funny. Going through a Proxy and doesnt even know it. James.. You get hit with some spyware? If you use Internet Explorer. Click Tools-Internet Options-Connections Tab and lan settings at the bottom. Make sure Proxy is UNCHECKED

                  Was it checked? I been working IT for 15 years now, so it is 2nd nature to help. Microsoft Security essentials(google it) is a good free antivirus. Malwarebytes(www.malwarebytes.org) is a good free spyware program. i reccomend paying the $25 one time fee to buy it though(runs real time along with an antivirus). I swear by both of them and they keep things nice and clean.  If you reload an antivirus, you have to remove any previous anti viruses though. You can have multiple Spyware programs loaded. i will gladly help if you need it.

                    I need a thorough cleaning. my norton expired 3 months ago and i uploaded some other protection which turned out to be a virus...... my passwords for email / online accounts got leaked, thankfully no money was taken. I think i could of got it at JFK or some airport as I flew to new england a few times, ever since to think of it its infected.

                      Possible. Open wifi networks are the worse(especially at non trusted places). One thing to be at a friends house, but another to be at a huge public location.

                        You can't get a computer virus by going through an airport.   The most common way to get a virus is to click a link or attachment in an e-mail.

                          I use AVG2011 - it's free - and boy it picks up a threat immediatley and removes it in a heart beat!  I also have Malwarebytes (free) and once in while I'll do a Spybot scan (free too) . I read many faults about Norton and when I did use it a few years ago I wound up with a bad virus it never caught. For me the best ones I listed are free. Also I 'd use the free microsoft safety scanner - now and then to check for a virus. It takes about three hours to complete and seems to work well. I'll set before I hit the sack and let it run and check it for results when I get up.

                          Years ago I tried some on line that do an instant check for free and then show you thousands of errors - then ask you to pay and sign up to remove !!! . All fake. And some will give you a free virus :)

                          My computer expert (a Korean whiz repairman) put me on to the ones I have and since then I have had no issues.

                          Hope this may help you James.
