I was sitting here this fine mid-western spring morn calling the bank to inquire about an overdraft that IS
a mistake and on hold and messing with my chess GUI, Arena, and then it happened.
Pop up Balloons.
I've had it with them. Ive NEVER
used them. They scare me when they 'pop up' suddenly. Just like the toaster scares me sometimes when it pops up unannounced. I want them bereft of life and demised and ex-pop up balloons.
What is the common denominator for these attackers? Is it an Active X thing? Is there something I can prevent from loading in the wonderful Code Stuff "Starter" utility (which itself has the most unapproachable balloon tip policy access)? Needles to say I have approached this in App setups and the Windows XP Pro reg wherever possible but many persist even inside of Windows XPP. I don't like pop up balloons.
