Hi, Is there a program that can translate a URL into english terms? The following is a URL that my Trend Micro bounced because it had my credit card information attached. I deleted the credit card number and the rest of the address was not considered unsecure by Trend Micro. What I want to know is what is all that information behind the http://? I have several of these addresses I would like to find out about, so I guess I am looking for an address translator if there is such a thing. Here is the URL

http://us.bc.yahoo.c...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

x=credit card number
Thanks for any help or information, John Jackson
