I am in the process of finalizing my BOOT.INI file for Windows XP PRO. I am being prompted to "Enter OS Load Options"....does it matter what order the options are written in?

Louis, my Kaspersky anti-virus blocked that first URL.

I clicked on the link, a red Kaspersky warning screen poped up with the message that the URL was dangerous and that I should let Kaspersky keep it from loading. I clicked ok.

Well...my Avira AV doesn't block it...nor have I every found it to be "dangerous" in any way...but I don't use Kaspersky and never have.

Are you using a suite with firewall?

I've never received such a warning from either a firewall or an AV program...about a given website...and I've been to plenty of websites that might warrant such, if the user isn't overly aware.

Your call...I don't see how any website can be "unsafe" if the system is configured properly with critical updates, firewall, AV, and adware/spyware protection. If the system is missing any of those...then I suppose it could be deemed to be vulnerable.

Considering that any system online is probably under attack by something all the time...I find that warning strange.

That computerhope website checked out OK on McAfee's Site Advisor.
