    Default IE and chrome freezing when pop up opens

    Hi,

    im not really sure which section to post this in but i have a hp laptop with vista on it and every time, whether it be IE (which i rarely use) or chrome, every time a pop up opens it freezes and i have to shut down the program and start again but not matter how many times i try i cannot get it to open properly. I want the pop up to open but as soon as the window appears it freezes.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Leanne

    If you are seeing pop-ups, scan your PC with your antivirus software and one of these Browser Hijacker Removal Tools.

    is the popup a login popup for a particular web site?
    i'm wondering if some monitoring or security program may be too assertively set?
