I think that if anyone had an answer to his question, they would post it, regardless of any digression.

Back when I was an active member of the Opera Forum, I vaguely recall some discussions that might relate to this, but that was long ago...longer than my memory tends to function.

Not that it has much to do with this, I can remember years ago, I was experimenting by entering random urls, just to see what would happen, and when I input hell.com, I reached a very strange website, that when I decided that I really didn't want to go into, a window suddenly appeared, saying that it was going to close the browser window...it did, without any interreaction by me. The point is that a lot is possible by a malicious website, that is not commonly encountered on the web.
Good point, about the evil sites. I suggest that everyone read the posts by our newest member Corrine. She is a security specialist and gives such important and vital information. I have known her (virtually) from another website for 10 years.

I am not a salesman by any means but when I finally purchased this software and started using it I was AMAZED at how many of the problems I was having on the internet just went away.

Attached is a screen shot of one of my configuration pages...you can see from this just how many different ways web sites can control your computer...I was unaware of most of them. I will not go on the internet with out this.

This version is completely compatible with Windows 7 32, I do not know about 64.

DPReview is a very respectable (and high traffic) site. I didn't find anything there that offered to change my resolution.

If there were liked site that altered user settings, I think they would want to know.

How was your issue resolved?
