RE: Ads next to scroll bar

I bet you have XP? (as your operating system.) Windows is trying to get everyone to switch to 'their' instant messenger. The XP system 'reads' what you're doing and when the page you are on has a REPLY button, it thinks you're trying to send a message.

Well, if you're going to send a message, let's force you to use OUR SOFTWARE! Up comes the install box, and up comes your irritation level.

I haven't tried this, but I think if you go to START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL there should be an MSN messenger ICON. Click on that and there may be a parameter to check that tells your system not to use it.

Hope that helps.

John

That's not through us. So, sorry, I can't help with that. I was able to get the ads moved from the right side of the screen.

You're right, and I found it. Can I just delete it?

I have the Google popup blocker and I don't get any popups anywhere. Try downloading it from the Google website and see how it works for you.

Ooooh - thank you Robin!  So much better.

Guess now we all need to bring her milk and cookies this week!  Any requests, Robin?  :)

You can delete the program, but not from the ICON. (Unless there is some menu option when you click it that says UNINSTALL.)

You normally have to use the ICON in the control panel that says ADD/REMOVE programs. Then find the MSN communicator and remove it that way.

NOTE: When you do, the first few times you visit various pages that the communicator tried to start up, you may receive messages like "Communicator can't be found do you wish to use IE, etc." You'll have to click on those to tell it to go back to using the original IE program.

Not saying you will, but don't be surprised if you do.
