    Default Delete IE 8 Teaser / Pop-Up

    Hi, All.

    Every day, or so, I get a persistent pop-up wanting me to download IE 8. I'm happy with what I've got. It does not have a 'go away for ever' button; just a 'cancel' and 'remind me later' buttons. Is there a way of permanently getting rid of the pop-up?

    Cheers

    Hi, Speedy. Yes, within IE on opening. IE is the default browser. Pop-Up blocker is on (but I guess that doesn't apply to those initiated by MS,themselves). Cheers.

    Relevant file names have '7' in them, so i guess it's 7. Cheers.

    Look under help / about. I doubt its 8, or it wouldnt be asking / nagging you. Or use another browser

    Help/About will give the version no.

    I would update to 8 for security reasons, alone. And if you are using Vista SP2 or win 7 I would update to IE9!

    But, your choice, obviously.

    As linw posted, its better for security reasons.

    it will be coming through Via Windows update ( normally) you can disable it by doing a reg hack, or even try This blocker from MS.

    Thanks, All.

    It is actually IE8 that I have already, but the pop-up keeps on coming.

    Whereto from here?

    Cheers.
