Thanks for responding.
I have already performed both virus & malware scans and nothing was detected.
These pop up windows are not the typical advertising-type of pop up generated by spy ware, malware, etc...
They seem to be pop ups executed by my computer that open repeatedly, usually with the same question, " Do you want to allow XProgram to connect to blablabla.com
? Or sometimes it is something like, "Would you like to allow X Program to send http requests to Y.com".
What is even more annoying is that it usually asks at least 3-4 questions for each individual web site.
As you can imagine, this results in a long chain of pop up windows opening up succinctly one after the other. I can never close them fast enough to even be able to navigate away and close Internet Explorer so that I can get on with whatever I was doing. Sometimes I even quickly drag them over to the corner of the screen and stack them up on top of each other out of the way. Absent a response from me, they remain there piled up and that seems to stop or significantly impede the initiation of any more of them popping up.
One other thing to note is that it seemed the most out of control when I was using this new network marketing tool that polls and evaluates the stats of websites & keywords compiled by google adwords. I had to log out of the program because it went so haywire opening windows trying to get permission to connect to each and every site on the long list of keyword sites that the program had compiled.
Please tell me there are some settings I can change or something that I can disable that will eliminate this issue.
Thanks so much for your consideration.
Good Day, Cynthia
