    Hi, I am trying to find out how to stop this from coming up when I browse certain forums.

    Hopefully if I describe it, someone might know how to help me disable whatever is causing it. Thanks

    t is a Microsoft Windows based pop-up, versus an advertisement.

    At the top it reads: Connect to WWW.MSNUSERS.COM

    Just below that: Welcome to MSN Communities, please sign-in with your passport account.

    Email Address (enter box)

    Password (enter box)

    Microsoft.passport.net

    ..I take it this msn page comes up over the page you're trying to work at??
    ..........{no mouse click}

    ..or does it -[msn page]-appear after clicking on something??

    I have a screen shot of the msn pop up window, and yes it comes up when I move from one forum to the next on this sports site that I frequent. It may be coincidence, and by that I mean it may come up without a mouse click, but I don't know for sure.

    I thought it might be a msn messenger/ microsoft messenger service/XP problem. But have not figured out how to stop it from happening. It is more annoying than anything else.

    thanks for any help you can give me.

    this pop-up page..is it always that same msn 'group' page?
    ..
    I've been to a site ot two that were 'partnered' with msn and they use msn's sign in page for their registration and sign in.
    ..ya think these pop-ups occur only on certain sites??

    It is always connect to www.msnusergroup.com

    I am not sure at all why it happens, I did send a request to msn, to see if they know about this problem and have a solution for it. although I haven't ever had much luck getting resolutions from them in the past.

    if i do get the information i will post it here to help others that may be having the same problem.

    of course if you know a solution I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Thanks
