I have Windows XP Home Edition on a new computer. When I go into Yahoo.com I can never close out. I have to hit the ctrl/alt/delete and then send an error message to end the task. It happens every time. I never had this problem with my old computer and Windows 98. Can anyone give me some ideas where to start here. I've tried clicking the Java on and off, doesn't make any difference.

Does the same thing happen on other websites?

Does it appear to be blocking popups when you can't close it?

No, it doesn't seem to happen in any other sites and no pop-ups coming up either.

The thing just sits on my toolbar unless I do the c/a/d and report. I thought maybe it would have a time out and disappear eventually but no.
