Loss of Pop Up windows

  PeterCutting 23:04 07 Apr 2004

Sorry this is probably an old thread but I have searched and failed to find what I need.
My XP home edition has suddenly stopped displaying pop ups.It launches a windows frame titled 'I.E provided by freeserve' but nothing appears in it and I can 'see' straight through it to the page beneath and the pointer no longer responds to things on that screen. i.e its like having a transparent window.
I have had Norton 2003 Security for months, which has never done this before and even when I turn it off completely as opposed to just turning off the pop ups bar it doesn't help.
I am stuffed

menus and restore back to before your problem occured.

If doesn't help are you actually connecting to the web ?

Hmm. The XP restore did not seem to show any errors to correct. Should it tell you if there have been any?
And yes I am on line at the time. I amassuming they are pop ups that are not appearing but in gfact it may be any new window on top of an old window is transparent ans tilted as above.
But thanks for your help so far
Any other ideas?
