Very interesting, seeing that Apple has done the work of making the KHTML rendering engine (which is subject to LGPL) Windows compatible.

Sheh, The program is Freeware, the source code isn't, as freeware and the specific license that you have agreed to by installing Avant Browser you have the rights to use the program on as many PC's that you wish, but not to view the code in any form.

Slyda007, do you have MSN Messenger, AIM, Weatherbug or Yahoo Messenger?

If so you might want to check whether it is set to display a "Today" page of sorts. All check whether any other software is trying to show a webpage upon it's start.

Of course, you might want to run a check for spyware also.

Politeness is more than a courtesy.

Avant shouldn't be starting by itself upon bootup, the start menu option during the installation is there to make it the default Web Browser in the top of XP's standard start menu.

Things to look for, spyware, & instant messengers which insist on opening a 'Today' web page upon starting.

Because the registry key that controls that option is only acted on by Windows at log in.

I use Hoversnap, http://www.hoverdesk.net/freeware.htm

It saves the capture to a user definable file (single name, overwriting previous, or incrementing # like a digital camera), allows modifier combinations of PrtScn to capture the entire screen, the Focused window or a user selectable area.

A Visa prepaid card might be of more use. (Gift cards are single use only) http://www.visaeurope.com/personal/choosing/payinadvance.jsp Just check your local HSBC, Nationwide, Barclays, NatWest, LLoyds-TSB, etc, one of them should offer a prepaid Visa which you can top up at a later date if necessary.

Re: Avant on Mac

I replied to a copycat thread, with a solution to have Avant Browser working within Mac OS X on an Intel Macintosh.

http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?t=19508

WARNING!! This solution is not free. :( But will leave your Intel Mac open to running other Windows Software.

Yes, but from the tone of JHC130's post, they wish to have a version of Avant running within Mac OS X.

I am having a few issues with Parallels, I will need another day to get it sorted.

As Avant Browser is a shell for the Trident HTML rendering engine, which is only found in Windows, it is very unlikely that there will be a version for Apple computers. However, if you run Parallels Desktop on your MBP and use it to virtualize a copy of Windows then install Avant Browser into there,...
