Computer Hassles

Two hassles with our home computer setup:

- There's something lurking about putting up pornographic popup ads from time to time. Lori sees these more often than I do, but I see them occasionally. It seems to be independent of site visits; we've both seen these ads when following links in LiveJournal.

I downloaded and ran AdAware, and it says the system is clean, and I've deleted my cookies. Yet it persists. :-(

- The wireless access point is losing its connection to the network multiple times per day. I am overdue for a call to SMC tech support.
