     This code first finds a number a links that you specify, and then goes to the links looking for email addresses. it does not look for the mailto: it looks for the @. So by doing this I get some email addresses that are not email addresses, but that does not happen to much. But, I need your help. This program Seems to freeze up, but it does not, you can move the window and press buttons, but the spider will spot search for links or email address for about 15 sec and then continues again. But, over all, it works good. beside I just made it in 12 hours. I would like you to look at the code and try to make it go faster. There are no bugs that I know of. But I like to hear what you got to say about this prog and what I need to do, so I can improve it. By the way, sorry about the poor coding. I'm not the best at VB. I can only code with what I know, and work from that. Thanks. Also please visit my site at Have fun!!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
