    I have read many of the posts here, some of which contain URL's to download areas or something else.

    Whenever I click on these URL's, the URL changes from what was posted to one with double-click or some other spyware in it. Why is this the case?

    If you use a Netscape based browser you won't get any spyware downloaded from any site but obviously when you open a downloaded programme this may still contain added spyware which is bundled with the software. If you use IE explorer with no plugins you will get constant spyware on your system which is one of very many reasons I don't use IE.

    Thanks Discmania, for the reply. However, I was actually talking about the hidden URL's within the URL'S in many posts in this forum.

    When you click on some of the URL'S, you can immediately see the name change prior to the URL actually opening. I just wonder if anyone else knows that this happens and why it happens.

    Of course you will see the URL change in the URL box as it is opening up a different URL link within Afterdawn. Every page has a different URL. This doesn't mean that you will necessarily get spyware. The spyware can come from any web source or within a programme you have previously installed. As I say if you don't want spyware just install Mozilla browser or Netscape.
