When getting the URL for that last message, I noticed that Sun now has
a version of Java newer than the one I had before, and decided to install
this update. The Google Toolbar program is offered at the same site,

Windows Mail, although it often doesn't cause them immediately.
Web sites that offer to let you do Google searches don't cause the same
