Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, I had trouble with a download the other night and now none of my popup windows will work. If I go to say ebay for example I can browse all the pages but as soon as I go to add pictures to a listing it won't open the popup that gives me the option to upload pictures.
I am having the same trouble on every site that I am trying.
If anyone can offer any help I would really appreciate it, I have checked all my internet explorer settings such as enabling java and they all seem correct.
No there is no google bar running, I have win xp service pack 1 installed. I only put service pack 1 on here on the weekend and still having the same type of problem with no popup windows
I know I should look at service pack 2, but every time I do an upgrade something seems to stuff up and stop working.
Any more ideas would be greatly appreciated!
seems to stuff up and stop working
I use Netscape as my default browser and after the last upgrade pretty much everything was stuffed up and stopped working. That seems to happen to me with every upgrade. After a couple of days of tinkering under the hood I can get it sorted out and back the way I like it.
It sounds to me like you have picked something up from the wild (very possible without a firewall) and you need to disinfect your machine, or some browser setting was inadvertently changed and you need to hunt it down.
Another suggestion would be to search the term 'popup blocker', and then check to ensure that some third-party software (spyware) hasn't made its way to your system.
