for a long time I havent been getting pop-ups clearly. when i use MyIE2 (just a skinable - tab style - popup killer brower) the pop-ups dont pop up, they are killed.. but sometimes IE opens it self up a little window which NEVER loads! If i want it to load, i just press "Refresh" on it, and it loads. BUt when I do a 'Windows Update' it all goes downhill. It doesnt work, at all! No downloading, no pop-up, nothing. I end up having to use a ftp program, and download the files from a different part of the microsoft website, install manually, and so forth. How can I fix the problem with Windows Udate.. I already tried Microsoft tech, but they just tell me to uninstall - reinstall, which I have.
