all of a sudden I have pop-ups and browsers that try to open. Please help.
Posted on 2004-05-01
I have never had much of a pop up problem until tonight. Now when I click on some things on websites that I have been to for years without pop-ups, now two things are happening:
1. At the bottom I see a 2nd browser trying to open but it does not......or
2. one does open down there at the bottom and it say "-----Mircrosoft Inte.....". If I close the browser I am using there on my desk top is this:
A box with .......Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Telling me that it has detected that I have XP and it is GODD that I have IE 6.0(good my butt)
your system may be running slow, etc. then it ask me if I want to correct it. No is not an option.
Down at the bottom I can see it is an advertisement from Softwareonline.com
I have never gotten this before tonight. What can I do to get rid of this nuisance that occupies a browser space at the bottom where I like to have 3-4-5 open(rather at the bottom) and if I add too many they will all compress into one at the bottom. So, this new one with this ad is getting me one closer to the max. And in addition to how to get rid of it, where did it come from all of a sudden, tonight?
