Something very strange happened in the last two minutes. I was clicking a thread link, when all these blank popups bombarded me, flooding all window slots. Can't open task manager to shut IE off. Close one another takes its place. Bottom half of the start menu (with things like shut down) is invis. So I have to use the button. Has this happened to any of you? :confused:

Uh ya it happens to me once in a while when i have too many windows (mostly annoying pop-ups). I just restart and everythings fine.

The sad thing is I was stupid enough to click that. Curiosity pisses me off. :mad:

Anyway, simple solution to those things. Hold Alt and continuously tap F4. If you do it quick enough it gets rid of them all and they stop coming.

All I do (because I've had that you are an idiot one do it) is press ctrl+alt+dlt, then go to Processes and find the one with the biggest kbs (or iexplore if you will) and close it. Then open IE and you'll be fine.

Um.. no: I use Mozilla (which has a built in pop-up stopper). I also use Opera (which also has a build-in pop-up blocker :p)
