My OS is Windows XP Pro SP3.
My Browser is Internet Explorer 7 ver. 7.0.573.11 (128-bit)
I am getting self loading Windows fromthere sites (examples):
They are like pop ups, i.e. they are not on different tabs - in fact there are no tabs - just a window on its own.
I have pop ups blocking on, and my firewall is the Windows firewall, with AVG free as anti virus program.
What happened, and how do I stop these self loading windows ? They appear after my using IE7.... Please do not advise me not to use IE....I need to for on-line reports....
