    it depends, some sites have this so that not just anybody can get in ?

    What kind of sites are these ?
     
  3. Mostly yahoo sites.. nothing like porn or anything, but it seems to be when it pops up, some pictures wont download.. Not sure why

    Cheers

    ok, havent gone to yahoo for a while but sometimes pictures just dont show, right click and say show picture

    towards the pop up crap, are you running any antipopup program?
     
  7. I'm not running any kind of non pop up software, but I do have the software.. unless it's on with me turning it on...
    It's off though from what it says..

    if you have it installed, it could be screwing something up with internet explorer !

    Not an expert but try that, then if it dosent work, umm i'll think of something..
     
  9. Ok.. I got rid of it, but the pop up is still there after reboot.. damn thing is driving me nuts...lol

    Are you viewing these pages from behind a firewall or proxy? Business networks and university networks often have this problem.
     
  13. I have neither.. It's a home system with no firewalls at this time.. It is on DSL as well..

    hello:

    these pop-ups might be internal and your computer might be an ad-server

    goto

    www.lavasoftusa.com

    download ad-aware and check for ad spies

    delete everything that pops up

    bad stuff


    let us know what happens

    cheers
