Windows 7: A Plague of Internet Explorer Download Offers

A Plague of Internet Explorer Download Offers

Help!

I had to have new HD installed recently, and I downloaded Internet Explorer. I have also tried Google Chrome and used the pair in tandem. I am an author and need to visit the internet at least fifty times a day searching for information ( like the ranks in Spain's Guardia Civil!). Since I have reinstalled my stuff, when I go to my first website it seems okay. Then when I try to move on to another site a big green arrow appears on screen saying CONTINUE, then a box comes up saying you are currently browsing the web with Internet Explorer and your Video Player may be outdated. Please update to the latest version for a better performance. Beneath that is a legal info box. Then up will pop a smaller box saying RECCOMENDED, petering me to download. Then there's An Internet download manager Box that comes up. They are so hectoring I cannot believe they come from Internet Express. I have regularly ticked the boxes for erasing browsing history and the other things under safety, but all to no avail. I have also looked carefully through my control panel list for malware or stuff that should not be there and can't seem to find anything. Any ideas please. It is driving me potty!

Hi,
I'm not sure where you downloaded Internet explorer or which version your presently using ?
But it's available via the windows update system hopefully this is where you downloaded from ?
Checking for windows updates is my first recommendation there was a new release just last Wednesday or 3/11 it was released no telling exactly when you might of received it but it would be ie11, or showing KB#2925418 Gear symbol/ About ie,

Adobe Flash player is up to 12.0.077 so you might check that in your control panel,

Clearing ie's cache,
Open ie,
Use Ctrl+Shift+Delete or Gear symbol/ Safety/ Delete browser history,
Uncheck the top box and the next four boxes should already be Checked/ Click Delete.

You can post a link to one of the sites where these popups are happening so we might test,
Cheers.

Hi Again Thrashie


I checked and I have got ie 11. I could not check Adobe Flash Player as the control panel say I do not have one! I do have an Adobe Reader X. I did the deleting stuff but have been doing that before and it has not cured the prob. How do I send you a link next time it happens?

Thanks

Thanks so much for that. Trash. Have to dash out on business and will try what you suggest and get back this evening. There's a PC world next door to where I am going so will drop in and see if there are any tech guys free.

As John McKenroe would say, I just don't believe it!
I went into PC World and the tech guy's hands flew over the keys and he said that something had got in and changed my settings to allow the spam/virus/unwanted stuff to take over when I went to a second site in sequence. He said it would be fine. I got back home just now and switched on...and the bloody thing is back!
