    OT:Deleting IE Cannot play UT2004

    It is urgent that I delete IE. I cannot play UT2004 or any game without a pop-up coming up. I do not use IE but instead FF. But if I delete IE my windows cannot browse or open folders. Is there a way to change them to open with FF so I can delete IE?

    you browse files etc using explorer not internet explorer, it should be fine

      Try using a popub blocker or a firewall??? IE has a built in popup blocker and windows has a firewall but you can propably find a better one by searching the web.

        do not delete IE, whether you mean iexplorer or explorer.exe
        just let it sleep there

            Man I've tried everything out there I get files deleted I didnt know about but those other files are still there. They don't even need internet to pop up. They will pop up but will say "Page cannot be displayed" inside.

            I just got 2 pop ups writing this message.

              Sounds like you have spyware. Download, install, and run Spybot: Search & Destroy available free at http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/.

              If that doesn't get everything, you can try HijackThis! at http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html but I warn you that you need a higher level of computer understanding to properly use this program as some of the things it finds may be things you want to keep. Use at your own risk.

                    Do you have any Antivirus, and some form of spyware remover installed? If not, you might try grabbing adaware, and hijackthis, which might be able to help remove them.

                          spysweeper, imho, is better than spybot, but use both, and then 95% of your spyware will be gone.

                          Just remembered to update my spybot definitions

                            SpywareBlaster in combo with Spybot and Spysweeper makes your computer well protected.

                            And don´t forget virus protections.

                            And I recommend keeping IE, if Firefox breaks and you have to redownload the installer, you´ll need to install IE again, I think you need to reInstall the OS or something.

                              Any way I can block IE from accesing the internet? My pop ups were gone for about 30 mins then came back. It seems it downloaded them just then.
