I've been using Quicken since the mid-90s, I guess, and recently updated from Q2003 to Q2006. I have to admit that I'm a bit old-fashioned; I don't connect to banks or brokerages, and prefer to enter transactions of all kinds manually.I was noodling around a bit, and in a moment of madness, clicked on the "Download Quotes" button. Sure enough, in a flash I got up-to-date quotes on a pile of stocks and ETFs. But I also received a bunch of links to stories associated with most of my stocks. So in the Portfolio view, along with the name of a stock (JPM, say), I now have a little icon - I guess it's supposed to be a newspaper, or maybe a report. And if I put my cursor on that little icon, I see a list of links to stories about that stock, all by way of Yahoo! Finance. Clicking on those links brings up a small browser window showing the linked article.Well, all that creeps me out. I can find my own news articles, and I'd rather not have a program loaded with my financial stuff connecting to Yahoo! or anyplace else. (Did I mention I'm a bit old-fashioned?)So - in the future, I'll stay away from the "Download Quotes" button. But how do I get rid of these goofy little icons? Am I stuck with these lists of articles forever?Lorenzo
