Using Defrag & Utilities Cleaners
Defragging your computer rids it of digital odds and ends that can slow down access to files and programs. It also cleans up available space on
your hard drive. Make it a must do at least twice a week. More if you re a consistent surfer.
Run utilites that clean up cookies, the temp files and history of visited URLs while surfing. Most browsers provide a way to do this under TOOLS, Options, or it may say Internet Options.
Zap spyware with 'window washer' 'pest patrol' or more than one of many such cleaners you will find listed in RESOURCES on
How2-4Newbies.com main site .
Happy surfing - keep safe.

From MC. I am into a web site and up comes this 'Run Time Error" message followed by several lines referring to it and asking me if I would like to 'debug'it. I have to hit cancel a lot of times before it goes away. Am I doing something to create this?
No you are not creating this error message. It just means that there's some faulty scripting in a Web page you're viewing and your browser, probably Internet Explorer is giving you this message.
Here is how you can prevent this error message. Open Internet Explorer at Start ... Programs ... Internet Explorer.
Go to Tools ... Internet Options and click on the Advanced tab.
Scroll down to the Browsing section, and check the box for 'Disable script debugging,' and uncheck the box for 'Display a notification
about every script error.'
Hope this helps.

Prospect Capture Methods Proven to Work
Never lose a single prospect. It's the most important rule in business.
Using a pop-up can be a real nuisance in that many people use pop-up killers but many do not. Some use the floater that is not stopped by pop-up killer, it just floats across the page until you click to take the action it requests or you click on the red 'X' in the corner to close it. And others use exit pops which are less likely to be intrusive and equally as likely to be filled in if you keep it simple.
The less steps your prospect has to take, the more likely they will click on these requests to subscribe.
These powerful tools automatically capture your prospect's name and email address without having to fill in a form. They are then subscribed to your newsletter with just a single mouse click.
Regardless of what method you choose, always have a subscribe to box on your sales page, web site, or email sends.
The second method that you should be employing is an exit pop that asks your traffic: " How can I help you? Why are you leaving without (taking the requested action)?"
Once you get a prospect to sign up, you know that to ensure you never lose them, you need from the beginning to:
1. Use the most powerful methods to capture your prospect
2. Combine different methods of capture, including LCP pages which we will discuss at a later date.
3. Use Autoresponders to deliver instant follow-up messages.
4. Automate your mailing list needs
So why would you not follow up equally as well with a visitor who comes to your site or page and leaves without taking the directed action?
If your marketing system is to buy names of possible leads, hit them with your best shot and hope it sticks a few of them to your requested action, you are losing big time on possible conversion rates by not asking them why they are leaving without giving you a chance to prove you have something they need.
