Google Chrome Frame pop up

  Truronian 10:42 12 Dec 2013

I have been trying to get on to a US site - spa benmarnicos - to buy a voucher for an american for christmas, She wants a spa session. whenever I get on to the site, an advert for Google Chrome Frame appears on top of (i.e. covering) the page I want. What is it? Do I need it? How do I stop the advert from appearing?

I am guessing that you are using Internet Explorer as your browser. Please check whether you have Google Chrome Frame plugin installed.

Google Chrome Frame plugin

I have checked click here both with Chrome browser and IE 11 and do not experience the pop up advert you describe.

The other thing you should do is that you should check for malware if above does not solve.

Thank you, Zak. I am usining Internet Explorer but i cannot see that i have installed this plug-in. Should i install it. What will it do?

I would not bother installing, in any case it is being killed off in January 2014!!.

Full details of what it does etc. it is only useful for old versions of IE 6, 7 and 8:

Google goes 'Reader' on Chrome Frame, kills plug-in for IE

Not sure which Windows OS you are running and which version of IE. If possible I suggest updating IE
