IE 8 popup - how can I stop it?

November 12, 2009 at 06:44:52
Specs: Windows XP Home, 3Gb RAM
upgraded to IE8 some time ago and it works OK. However every few
days I get and IE8 pop up urging me to install all sorts of stuff which
doesn't interest me. I just close the pop up bet can't find any way of
stopping it. Not the end of the world but annoying. Any suggestions
will be most welcome.

Beware that Microsoft says not to click any part of a popup to close it. Use Alt + F4 to close it.
Clicking on them can cause Malware to enter into computer.

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Chuck Thanks for your help. I will try your solution when the next pop up appears and will let you know the result.

Better yet, dump IE8 & go back to IE7.
