    When I am surfing using IE, I click on a link and up pops a full size blank browser window with the words about:blank in the address bar. I have to x it out to get to the page I am browsing to. What is this and how can I stop it from happening. I don't recall this happening in Windows 98

    about:blank windows are normally advert pop-ups ... if you leave the window open then an advert will load.
