I just got done using Windows Update to update 4 computers running IE8 (Vista and 7). Those were probably the 4th Tuesday updates from last week. I haven't seen any pop-ups about enhancing IE8. I feel left out, unless you all got a virus. When did these pop-ups begin?

have you enable pop up blocker and disable automatic update in IE. ? I'd would also go for Firefox . Just like what manhunter suggest:)

I don't need to turn on pop-up blocker. (Some specialized websites only work right if pop-ups are allowed.) I use the HOSTS file instead. As far as auo-updates go, that applies to Windows Update, not just IE. I prefer to do all the Windows Updates manually so I can choose which ones and how many to do at once and sometimes use clean boot mode. That way they won't create any new problems. Still wonder what all the talk is about some "pop-up for enhancing IE8".
