When I boot up FoxFire it automatically boots up an audio program.

Customer Question

When I boot up FoxFire it automatically boots up an audio program. I can't shut off the program. It's an ad and I picked it up yesterday while on the net. If I close FoxFire it stops. If I open Internet Explorer it's not there. How do I stop this audio program?

Andy,

I just closed ALL tabs again, except my Gmail and the tab to talk with you. The audio STOPPED. Perhaps the problem was an audio file attached to a website I had logged onto? I have not rebooted Foxfire as I don't want to miss your response.

Andy,

I solved the problem by closing all tabs except the two I mentioned. The tabs did not reopen when I rebooted. Your solution would work as well I it would have me rebooting with no Tabs.

Given I solved my own problem do I still owe you any money? I'd like to use your service again as needed as its incredible. Can I ask for you?
