Problem with pop-ups on bottom of screen

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.

autohide taskbar w/google chrome problem
When I use the autohide taskbar with google chrome maximized, it 'covers' the taskbar (or the very thin line at the bottom of the screen that's there when the taskbar is minimized), so that when i bring the mouse to the bottom of the screen to access the taskbar, it doesn't pop up.


How to Import and Export Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker Settings
By default, Windows 7 Internet Explorer displays pop-ups that appear as a result of you clicking a link or button. Pop-up Blocker, when turned on, blocks pop-ups that are displayed automatically (without you clicking a link or button). This will show you how to import and export all of your personal Pop-up Blocker settings in Internet Explorer in Windows 7 and Vista.

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.


View a video using the entire screen in Windows Media Player
If you want a video, TV show, DVD, or visualization to fill the entire screen when you play it, switch to full-screen mode in Windows Media Player. When the Player is in full-screen mode, you can control playback with the on-screen controls that appear at the bottom of the video screen.


Screen Blackout
I have Windows 7 Pro 64. I bought and installed the NVidia Geforce GTX 460 video board about 3 months ago. I have 8 G memory and still have about 275G on the HD. I can be doing minimal things on the computer when the screen will black out.

The monitor will tell me I am not getting a signal. Then after 2-4 seconds the monitor will come alive. I will get an error message on the right hand bottom of the screen telling me there is a problem with the video driver.

I have upgraded the driver each time one comes out. I even went back to the driver that was first installed, but regardless, it still happens.

I opened up the case and made sure everything was plugged in and the board was well seated. I have cleaned it out although the dust build up was minimal.

My power supply is 700 W. So, I'm not sure why this keeps happening.


Missing Toolbars / Start Menu
I have my "Toolbar/Start Menu" on the right side of my monitor and until recently, I had another smaller "menu/application bar" (don't really know what to call it - I think it is something like "the dock") on the bottom of my screen.

It would show itself when I placed my mouse corner right at the bottom of my screen. It had four "icons" on it - one for all the MS Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), one for the Trash/Recycle bin and a couple of others.

For some reason it disappeared a couple of days ago and I don't know why and I would like to get it back.

Double clicked the shortcut closest to the bottom right of the screen
On system start, if any desktop shortcut is double clicked the shortcut closest to the bottom right of the screen will actually open. If the webpage associated with the bottom right shortcut is closed, MOST of the time clicking the original shortcut will lead to the correct webpage, but sometimes it takes several tries.

After the problemcorrects itself, usually after closing the wrong web page and trying again, but sometimes only after multiple tries, shortcuts open the correct webpage until the computer is restarted again.

If I take the bulk of the shortcuts off the desktop, clicking on an interior shortcut will activate the lowest right icon on the desktop regardless of whether it's an internet shortcut or some other type.

So - steps I have taken. First, checking for malware - system is totally clean. Secondly - troubleshooted as many different things as I could, including removing most of the shortcuts from the desktop, resetting all file associations to defaults, a few registry edits I found online to fix odd issues, uninstalling recent updates (he said the problem began with SP1), switchingto Firefox, running a Windows Fixit for the desktop, creating a new desktop and moving his stuff there, etc. None of which fixed the issue.

So - I decided to back him up and reinstall Windows. I made a system image of his current configuration, created a normal Windows backup and also one using Windows Easy Transfer.Reinstalled Windows using the factory image on his system, restored his data using the Easy Transfer backup - and problem came back with his settings!

I can find nobody else with this same issue on the web no matter how I try to search, I don't want to have to do another factory restore and lose his settings (it's a big enough pain in the neck to reinstall his software and do the updates,

What I would most prefer would be someone who knows what theheck the problem is, how to fix it, and then I can restore the original system image and make the problem go away


Startup repair virus or something else
I had downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) on to my Sony Vaio and after a few months I had a security warning pop up stating "found a virus on computer". This was still under MSE and I followed the directions and downloaded onto a CD a bootable Virus remover.

I still yet again did what it said, and I then received the Blue Screen of death. But it only appeared when I took out the repair CD.

The down side is that my screen would always be bright and never turn off. Then after multiple "repairs" the blue screen went away and then the Startup repair loop came into existence.

Even with the CD it would not go away. Also, my screen is black, but a black to where you think the contrast is on. I can see the window, butthat’s if I angle the screen a certain way.
How can I fix this? Plus, I do not have a restore disk because I have lost it.


Taskbar covering bottom of all pages.
With Windows 7 Ultimate 64 the pages go down below and behind the back of the taskbar. Before they would stop at the bottom of the taskbar so I could adjust the text size etc. This is trouble for me because many of the things I do fall behind the bottom of the taskbar. It isn't just in IE8 it is with any program the bottom of the page falls behind the taskbar not to it.


User account control - position of popup window
I have a program (under Windows 7 64 bit) that must be run with administrator privileges. Of course, whenever I invoke it, the User Account Control window pops up and asks me "Do you want to allow the following program etc." It's irritating, but I don't want to change my security settings so I'm prepared to put up with it.

The problem is that the popup window is always placed in the top left corner of the screen if I invoke it from the icon pinned to the taskbar, or in the dead centre of the screen if invoked from the program icon on the desktop.

With a trackball and a large monitor that's a LONG way to move the mouse each time.

What would be very handy is a way to direct that popup screen to be drawn in the bottom left hand corner of the desktop instead.
