I've got a few - the one that comes with Firefox (used when I use Firefox), the one that comes with IE (used when I use IE) and one with Google toolbar (only works with IE). I tried disabling all of them at the same time and it didn't have any effect, so I'm not sure if it's a pop-up blocker that is causing the problem. I'm not seeing any system messages from Windows - messages that pop up and tell you something about your computer and ask you to click OK after reading them and then the window goes away. There's a sound made so I know they're being generated, but I never see them because something is stopping that from happening.
I think the problem occurred when I had both yahoo SBC internet protection installed and my NOD32 antivirus at the same time, but I'm not sure. I've since uninstalled yahoo SBC internet protection. Is it possible that having the two on at the same time, even briefly, caused a change somewhere that is making this happen?
I tried doing a system restore, but it didn't solve the problem, so I undid the restore.
