I would have thought a vet would have know that double posting isn't a very smart idea.

As a suggestion, download the free ZoneAlarm. See if it works better at first and if it does, bin Norton.

I have the same problem and I can't find a solution.

I've tried several different types of firewalls, checked my phone line, changed ISP's, emptied Internet Explorer cache, disabled call waiting, reinstalled and repaired the browser and nothing works, so I've just given up.

No, I've given up, but try Zone Alarm, Sygate, Agnitum and you might have some luck.
