I just bought a new computer a few days ago (so I haven't managed to totally screw it up). It came with Vista and IE7. Several websites that I consistently use have pop-ups (where I apply for jobs, etc.). The pop-up feature on IE is disabled but the pop-ups take forever to load. The computer processor is 1800 Mhz 4 core; the machine has 4GB RAM and 8 GB memory. I did not replace the monitor since it was fairly new but it has a refresh rate of 60 Hz. I was unsure if the monitor was the problem so am looking for an answer...
My second problem is that since I used Outlook 2003 before, I wanted to keep it. No problem there, except that now when I try to click a link in a new message, I get a message that says "IE is not connected" if I do not have IE opened up in addition to Outlook. That never happened on my old computer which ran XP, so have assumed this is an "incompatibility" problem with Vista??
thanks for any help
