Why am I getting popups so close

Popups and other troublemakers

The Internet advertising industry has discovered the pop-up as a popular advertising medium and distributed it en masse on the Internet. Popups are small websites that pop up outside of the browser window and are blocked by new browsers. Windows reports this with a message window. One click in the selection field Do not show the message anymore and on the button OK prevents the message from reappearing.

Driver installation with hurdles

When installing drivers, Windows XP often reports that the desired driver is not compatible, i.e. not listed in Microsoft's driver database. You can usually ignore this message because the driver software supplied by the manufacturer is usually more up-to-date than the one listed in the Windows database. One click on Continue installation makes the message disappear again.

Dangerous ActiveX messages

For the moving content of a website, Windows uses several technologies, in addition to JavaScript, so-called ActiveX scripting. The proximity of the programming language to Windows alone makes this software prone to all sorts of nonsense. In this way, programs can be smuggled into the computer and viruses transmitted unnoticed via ActiveX scripting. Internet Explorer can block such elements, but indicates this with a pop-up window. If you only navigate to trustworthy sites, you can change the standard setting of Internet Explorer.

Pastries on the net: the cookies
Cookies are small text files that store certain user data when you visit a website. This can be done with malicious intent, but some pages, e.g. online shops, do not work without cookies, so Windows XP asks the visitor to activate them if cookies are disabled. By clicking on the menu item Extras / internet options and then on the register privacy of the Internet Explorer, the settings of the cookies can be influenced using a slider. The setting medium is enough to banish the XP messages in the future.
