At first, yes - good call. However, this AM I shut IIS and all of its
co-conspirators down, and even booted into safe mode and disconnected my
network cable from the cable modem - and STILL had the same problem.

Thanks so much for the tip - I was wondering if maybe I could do something
like that, but didn't know that's what Admin.dll was for. I will surely get
rid of FP Extensions and see if that makes a difference. But what about all
those scripts? I wonder why they keep coming back - even when I'm not
connected to the net!
