Problem with pop-ups on bottom of screen

Problem with pop-ups on bottom of screen
Views: 5
I use W7 Home and IE 9.0. In general, I have no problems with pop-ups, except of late I'm getting an increasing number of pop-ups along the bottom of the screen.

But, any ideas on how I can eliminate such annoying pop-ups? Note that the elongated rectangular pop-ups occur on a lot of the Yahoo sites.

Also there is usually an X where I can close the pop-up. Again, the pop-up is a long rectangle along the bottom of myscreen, maybe 1/3"- 1" high.

Taskbar Orb

Everytime I hover over the orb it seems to fold into itself. Half of it seems to go under the top half of it. My taskbar is on the top of my screen (I like it like that, since in class I'm usually looking up at the teacher and if I need to open something or go to a program I can do it faster), maybe that is the issue? However when I expand the taskbar (make it heigher) the problem desists. I just switched the taskbar to the bottom of the screen and the problem goes away, at the normal hieght I have it at. So this is only an issue when the taskbar is put on the top of the screen

Windows 7 64 bit and UPS Thermal Printers

I have a Zebra 450 ctp UPS thermal printer and I can't get it to work with UPS website and Windows 7 64 bit. To make it work, you are supposed to load a driver for it, which I did and it prints test pages fine.

Then go to the UPS website and download and install an addon to your browser and then you can create and print UPS labels for shipping packages from their website. This worked wonderfully in Windows XP but I have bought a new PC with Window 7 64 bit Enterprise and can't get it to work at all.

I've read Google posts and tried uninstalling and re-insstalling to make it work including locating a 64 bit version of the UPS thermal addon but still can't get this to work.

Windows Scaling Problem

My laptop is set for a resolution of 1680 x 1050. I have a monitor which I connect to via a docking station, and it's a wider screen format than my widescreen laptop. The resolution on the monitor is 1920 x 1080.

The laptop seems to support that just fine with one exception. The Windows 7 snap-to feature that lets you move a window to the right or left edge of the screen and have it pop into a half-screen mode only works on the left edge of the screen.

My cursor doesn't stop at the right edge of the screen like it does on the left . it just drags the window all the way off the right edge of the monitor.

And some icons that I have placed near the right edge of the screen on the laptop seem to be missing . as though they've been placed somewhere off the right edgeof my visible screen on the external monitor.

Is there any way to correct this?

Random lock ups on windows startup

I've had this weird problem for about 9 months now when starting up, on the window loading screen ( where it shows the windows logo on screen) my comp could just lock up on it randomly. this has been happening from windows xp to now windows 7. at first i was told it was caused by my video card because since amd and ati partnered and nvidia and intell partnered, using nvidia cards on a amd MB causes problems like that, this was back when i had XP/vista. Ok so i was cool with it but a couple days ago i bought windows 7 pro and a brand new ati video card hoping these problems would be gone but, they are not! so does anyone have any idea what is causing this weird problem that has carried over from my old comp to my new one? the only thing that is the same is the computer case from when i had xp.
