Pop Up Windows

Several sites pop up smaller windows with advertising. The opop up blocker 
does not stop these smaller ad windows. How do I stop them?

You don't.

They LOOK like a pop up to you, but the designer that wrote the page made 
them not conform to the rules that define them as a pop up sepecifically to 
avoid the blocker. Welcome to a world where standards can be ignored.

Hi Larry,

Add those sites to your Restricted Sites zone. This will disable Active 
Scripting by default and some other functions on those sites may not work.

A side note.. ensure you have the Default Security Zone settings for all 
Zones as Popup blocking is also determined by the zone that the site loads 
in.

Tools>Internet Options - Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"

Regards.

And just check also that those sites are not in your IE Popup blocker white 
list.

Tools>Popup blocker>Popup Blocker Settings

If you have other Popup blockers installed (Google toolbar), they also have 
white lists. Usually I turn off other popup blockers and only use the 
built-in IE popup blocker.

Regards.

Those aren't popups.  That content is part of the web page so it is not a
popup.  CSS scripting is used to present content within the web page with
the ad content.  It is you that interprets the display as a separate dialog
or window but that's not what is actually happening.

The only way to disable those pseudo-popups is to disable scripting;
however, permanently disabling scripting will result in the loss of much
functionality at a vast number of web sites.  You probably don't want to
disable scripting in IE just because of a few rude sites.  You could add the
rude sites to the Restricted Sites list which disables scripting for their
web pages.  However, you might find that the rude site becomes unusable when
you disable scripting there.  They probably use scripting for more than just
their fake popup content.

PB 5.0 on Windows 7 (x64)
Hi, We are having problems installing PB5 on a pc with Windows 7 x64. The installations fails at the end and the installation rolls back. (Before the PB installtion Visual 2005 and 2008 had been successfully installed on the pc.) Is it possible installing/running PB5 on Windows 7 x64? If not, is the problem x64 or Windows 7. I've seen reports of problems on Windows Vista x64. Thanks, Jojje See this post regarding PB6. I presume that PB5 has a similar problem. http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsce.platbuilder/brows= e_thread/thread/f8d26b911240e6bb/2...

Windows Vista File Backup / Restore
Can anyone help. I've had a drive partition fail and, after a couple of days work (and a new drive), need to restore ALL the files from the original partition from my backup(s).

difficult parent window problem in CDialog::Create / ::AfxGetMainWnd
I am creating two modeless dialogs which are first not displayed. In the constructor of the dialogs I call CDialog::Create(IDD,pParent). When I create the dialogs, I don't have any parent window, because I first only store data there, so I supply NULL as parent window. Later I'll show one of the two dialogs using ShowWindow(SW_SHOWNORMAL). In a new instance I'm doing the same again (create two dialogs, NULL as parent). Then I show one of them. The problem is now that when the first active window closes, then the window of the new instance also closes. As I found out, CDialo...

KB 91185 won't install from Windows Update
Like a few questions before this one, the 'HID non-user input data filter' updates {2 of them} seem to fail. I did hide them, but now it seems the 2 USB ports on the outside of my tower, no longer work! The 2 on the back of the tower work: they have an optical keyoboard and a printer...both work. When I use devmgmt.msc and disable them, nothing. Then I enable and 'scan for hardware changes', and it seems to put them 'back', but then says there's an error with the ''HID non-user input data filter' again? So I guess I need the fixes, but.....

Moving from Windows
I'm about to buy my first Mac--dual core, either portable or desktop. As a longtime Windows user I'm just wondering about the many Office files I have on my current system. Will they, basically, be "readable" on the Mac version of Office if I buy whatever the current version is? Having heard that a lot of Mac programs can read Windows files, I'm thinking of buying a large external hard drive and copying all of my files over to it for later use on the Mac if this is possible. Is it? Thanks, Tim Yes it is. Get Office 2004 for Mac, it should be able to handle ...

Book for a windows/c++/mfc beginner...

As I understand it I need to use MFC for the windows stuff, and without it Visual C++ would just be command prompt based? Is that correct?

Windows update installation problem under Windows 7 64 bit
This morning I noticed a message in the Action Center saying that there had been a "Windows Update installation problem" dated two days ago. A Windows update did not install properly, it said.

I checked Windows Update history and I did an update for Internet Explorer 8 on 1/23, two days earlier, that it said completed successfully.
