Windows 7: Blocking Browser Apps.

25 Feb 2012   #1

Well its not POS Vista lol : )
Blocking Browser Apps.

nothing @#$es me off more than when apps sneak on to my browser.
I can no longer press express install on anything. So I dont.

Is there a way to tell my browser "DO NOT Enable any kind of browser app install what so ever" ?

I dont want to go in and disable crap thts been installed after its been installed.
I want to block anything from installing in the first place.

or is there a browser that doesnt support apps. I dont know why chrome and foxfire would even support that retarded @#$ in the first place.

wow how pathetic. I had to change "Allow apps to run even after chrome is closed".
I cant believe that's enabled by default.

Clearly google doesnt give a @#$ about security atm. it would rather have data.
