    Well, lately they have been becoming a constant nuisance. Personally I can not find any information that will eliminate the popup when you hover over someone's name for AOL Instant Messenger or ICQ. And a lot of the time they stick, so I dont know how to get rid of them until I click some stuff. Its really becoming a Nuisance and I want to get rid of them, so how do I do it?

    It's probably some kind of scumware that installed on your sysem with another program that you Downloaded. Have you installed any new programs that you downloaded lately? Try running Ad-aware and see what it comes up with.

    nah, it's not ad stuff, he means the generated info if you hover your mouse over a name in AIM or such, sometimes the boxes get stuck and you need to click junk to get rid of them, it's a royal pain at times
