Help!!! I need help with my computer!!!
 
I have a cable modem. Lately Internet Explorer has been acting up. Whenever some sort of popup ad shows up it closes the web page I'm currently on and shuts down with the exception of the popup ad which stays. Netscape Navigator seems to work fine and I have been using that lately as a second resort. But I would prefer to use Internet Explorer. Anyone else have this problem? Should I install a software that blocks popup ads? Any recommendations? Thanks!

I believe there is a way you set how many browsers can be opened at once. If it is set to 1 the popup may be taking priority forcing over your main browser thus shutting it down.

I dont know how to change the setting and this may not even be the answer to your problem but its the best I could come with.

Sounds like you picked up some html spyware/nasty-ware.

I would recommend downloading a program like ad-aware. It will scan your computer for spyware and other nasties, and remove them for you. Get more info here:
