    You get up in the morning and power up your Windows XP Home machine. You walk away to get a cup of tea and and a bite. You come back and open your web browser to pick up the news at CNN. You notice that near the top of the browser a message stating:

    Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional details, click here...

    You visited the CNN site just last night and didn't see this message so you don't think it's something about the site. What is the most likely explanation for this sudden change in the browser's behavior?

    1. You are using the Firefox web browser which blocks pop-ups by default.

    2. CNN has started using popups and your IE web browser blocks them by default.

    3. Windows XP automatically checked for and installed Service Pack 2 this morning and one of the results is that IE now blocks pop-up ads.

    4. Windows XP automatically checked for and installed an update for IE this morning and IE now automatically blocks pop-up ads.

    Answer later.

    Number 4 for me. He would have noticed number 1 last night, for number 2 CNN have been using pop-ups for a long time now and IE didn't block them, and for number 3 he would have noticed a large service pack installation.

    3 for me. Updates on their own won't install pop-up blocker - only the full SP2.

    im saying 2
    major service packs do not install without user intervention unless its specifically set to do so, even so this would tell you to reboot, and SP2 is not a mandatory install for WU and AU users until April 12th (AU) and October (WU)

    lets say CNN have launched a new questionare that they want users to fill in and it pops up, IE doesnt like this :)

    I would also go for 2, SP2 is a major update so I am counting that out, agree with Phoenix on the reboot.

    Answer time. It's *supposed* to be 3 but I probably didn't word it well enough. I should have included a part where the computer rebooted. The idea was that SP2 includes a popup blocker for IE and that your XP computer can be configured to automatically check for, download and install SPs and hotfixes. I guess this one doesn't really count since I worded it badly, but on the other hand, it did cause you all to think about it which is the real point of these questions. If you understand the underlying process behind the question, that's more important than getting a random question right or wrong. Cheers.

    Think we'd all agree that it generated a positive discussion tho Trip - and pretty much everything was covered in terms of how each one was possible.

    Despite the wording (we need to get an author in around here :wink: ), great work. :)
