I have recently experienced a problem where I click on a link to open a new window and the window starts to open and then shuts down.  It is happening across all programmes (including this one!) and seems to be getting worse.  I have up to date VET software, Ad Aware monitoring and using XP OS.  Please help as it is getting hard to do anything!

Hi

Is this for web browser? It might be that IE downloaded something wrong that messed it up. Try http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/IEFIX.htm and going to Start->Run->%TEMP% and delete everything there. Also, try going to Start->Run->sfc /scannow

Finally, check to make sure you don't have a popup blocker. Most popup blockers can be averted if you hold down Ctrl and press the link.

If all else fails, make sure it's not your computer by downloading Mozilla Firefox

Regards,
Zyloch

It is definitely the pop up blocker, - when I disable AdAware SE Plus monitoring I have no problems, thanks.  But I don't want it permanently disabled and the tip about using Ctrl doesn't work - any other suggestions to avert it temporarily?

Hmm... I don't have much experience with SE Plus monitoring--but I know Spybot S&D works, so there might be some settings to tweak?
