    pop up tabs (ie7)

    Hello, when browsing a new tab auto attempts to open with the message on the tab "connecting..." though no page actually loads. It is a nuisance as much as anything else. I have run ms malicious software toold, adaware, spybot, registry repair etc to no avail. Has anybody any suggestions.

    Thanks Darren.

    Does this happen with all sites or just certain site ?? Is it intermittent or a constant problem ??

    Check out this Google search and see if any of the situations apply to you.

    Thanks Doc, there is no considtency with it. It has just popped up when on this site. Google search doesn't provide any meaningful solutions.

    Are you saying that when you are here, at the Lounge, that another browser window attempts to open, but fails ???

    Sorry that was poor instruction. It can happen on any site, including when in The Lounge.

    Thanks

    OK... I'm still using IE6 so maybe one of the IE7 users can shed some light on this for you. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Does the tab ever stop "connecting"? Does it close? What is your popup blocker filter setting (Internet Options | Pop-up Blocker | Pop-up blocker settings)?

    Edited by HansV to remove superfluous white space from attached picture.

    Thanks, it doesn't stop connecting but doesn't actually connect and no new address appears in the explorer address bar. Not sure about the internet options|pop-up etc? Are you talking about tools|internet options| etc because I dont see the pop up option once in internet options.

    See bitmap of look of IE.



    Thanks Darren.

    The pop-up blocker can be configured in the Privacy tab of Tools | Internet Options...

    I actually meant Tools | Pop-up Blocker | Pop-up blocker settings. Sorry for the confusion.
