    Mouse Hover

    I have performed evry method to stop the mouse hover function. I have also been told that websites themselves can be set to automatically activate when a mouse passes over (I have seen that). It seems strange that I do not have the control of my computer to stop that function and appears to be a access for hackers. Am I incorrect?

    Can you be more specific?
    I'm not quite certain I understand exactly what you are talking about.

    When you pass the mouse over certain items (ie URLs) it will automatically activate (ie. go to site or open a listing).

    You can set it up to 4 sec. or the site itself can be set to open when just passed over.

    I've never encountered an instance where hovering my mouse over a URL would initiate opening a link.
    ...With the exception of some of those annoying ads that are embedded into text that pop up a small picture.
    Like these...
