[Crosspost to IE General] Can you give us the URL of a page where you encounter this behavior? Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your IE version when posting in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply. 1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode? => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer (No add-ons).

Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 3. 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? 4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)? 5. Why hasn't WinXP SP3 been installed by now? Extended Support for WinXP (x86) SP2 ends on 13 July 2010. After that date, computers running WinXP (x86) SP2 will NOT be offered any further critical security updates, Automatic Updates will not work, and Windows Update website will not be accessible until SP3 is installed. What does it mean if my version of Windows is no longer supported? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/what-does-end-of-support-mean -- ~Robear Dyer (PA Bear) MS MVP-IE, Mail, Security, Windows Client - since 2002 The webpage you are viewing is trying to wrote: > The web page you are viewing is trying to close the window yes or no > IE 7 > I have posted this before with no real way of resolving this page problem. > is there a kb article from microsoft that has any information or a patch > or > hot fix > for this web page script that pops up with a blank page. > all i need i maybe an executable file i can run that when this pop up > comes > up it closes the window and need this to come from microsoft since this is > a > microsoft IE 7 issue. > windows xp sp2 with IE 7. > There are some blogs on this but no real answers comming from microsoft to > send out a fix to resolve these anoying popups.
