    Hi. I'm on my office computer because on my laptop I can't use the internet.
    I use IE. Instead of my homepage coming up normally and then no matter what
    I try - linking, typing in the browser from the beginning - like www.etcetc
    or even opening another tab I keep getting the same thing - a couple of
    clicking noises then a sort-of ad from comcast asking my to disable firewalls
    to install something I didn't request. It's not small like a pop-up but it's
    not a full page either. I have NOT clicked on it. I can't get to anything
    else on the internet. Here's what;'s in the address bar:
    http://actsvr.comcastonline.com/nocache/realactsvr.html

    How can I block it or make it stop? Thanks!

    This is what happens when you try to connect without a valid Comcast
    account. Your account has been disabled due to non-payment or TOS
    violation. You need to call Comcast...
