    Every time I start IE I get a pop-up window. This is not when I go to my
    home page but only on launching a browser from the icon or start menue.
    CTRL+N doesn't cause this. Any ideas why? Any icon/start menue/quick
    launch does this. Its always the same size window for some ad, & also there
    is nothing special about my start page (in IE options) or the properties of
    the icons.
