I need to develop an application(something like ad rotator component but with many more features) which once installed, places itself at the bottom of the user&#039s browser & will be able to detect when the user goes online. <BR>When the user comes to our site it&#039ll fetch advertisements tailored to users likes & preferences automatically from our SQL server (in the database we will have users preferences stored)& display them in a banner form. The user can also close it or minimize it. It&#039ll be a little bigger than the taskbar. <BR><BR>Firstly, I need to know if such a component can be developed using ASP alone or I&#039ll need to use COM.<BR>Any suggestions or help would be welcome<BR>many thanks<BR>rashida
