    I use Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird with Avast
    antivirus and that is fine.
    I would like to use Proxomitron to mop up the last of
    the ads, but it operates on the same localhost settings
    as Avast. Is there a way round this?

    In Proxomitron, go to Config, select HTTP. In this you will see the
    Proxomitrons Port number that it uses. Change this to another port that is
    not used by anything else. There might be a way to change the Port number
    that Avast uses as well.

    I be stoopid. Sorry.
    Avast is Thunderbird and Prox is Firefox.
    Got confused by a problem I had with Avast and Spampal.
    Doh!
