    Ever since I moved up to IE8 a couple of weeks ago, I get a pop up every
    other day-
    "Set Up Windows Explorer 8 - Welcome to Windows Explorer 8" where they want
    me (I think) to "personalize" it. There is no box where I can click so that
    I will not keep getting this message in the future. How can I kill this?
    Thanks

    Personalize it, what else? It takes about five seconds. Either that or
    use a real browser like Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Seamonkey.

    [X-post to IE General newsgroup...again!]

    Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed IE8?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Just go ahead and setup IE 8 starting with that popup box. Then it won't
    come back.
