EXPERT - You can also keep all applications from running automatically on your system by removing ALL privilages from the RUN registry (below). This in effect nukes all add-on applications from running automatically. It doesnt remove them from your system, it just removes their ability to run without your knowledge. This is the registry key below. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run You can download the Yahoo! toolbar that contains a POP - UP BLOCKER. This can be turned on/off according to your needs.

YouTube doesn't give users any popups. If you're seeing popups on YouTube, it may be due to malware or a browser add-on. Make sure you scan your computer and disable any potentially malicious add-ons.

it is possible on the 1995 Ford Explorer that a burned out fuse will cause the power windows to stop working. Check the power window relay in the engine compartment relay bank near the battery or the power window fuse in the fuse panel on the driver's side of the interior.

7-Zip doesn't know folder path of drop target. Only Windows Explorer knows exact drop target. And Windows Explorer needs files (drag source) as decompressed files on disk. So 7-Zip extracts files from archive to temp folder and then 7-Zip notifies Windows Explorer about paths of these temp files. Then Windows Explorer copies these files to drop target folder. To avoid temp file usage, you can use Extract command of 7-Zip or drag-and-drop from 7-Zip to 7-Zip.

In Windows, please check if OutLook is listed in Start -> All Programs -> StartUp. If it is there, remove it. Then it should not load automatically in start up.

If this question is in reference to the us software that gets installed as you insert the drive, Hold down the shift key as it's being inserted until windows recognizes the drive. It's a good idea to have windows explorer open as you insert the drive so you can see when the drive is recognizec. To open windows explorer... hold down the windows key (usually next to alt key) and the E at the same time.

You might need to disable your extensions. They can allow popups and can bypass Adblock. If this continues, you may need to "powerwash" your browser.

To stop the popups you first have to remove the infection. You can try doing it yourself:http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-green-avOr you can use a spyware remover, such as Spyware Doctor or SUPERAntiSpyware.

You just right click and go to "open with.." and select your player or viewer. If it doesn't open with the selected player, it could be an unknown format for the software.
