When I am browsing little pop-ups appear which say 'about:blank' - Microsoft Internet Explorer. How do I get rid of this please?

My advice is download a pop up blocker, sometimes your ISP provide one but if not click here

5. Change the startup type to Disable and click Apply at the bottom.
6. Click OK to exit window.
