Just wondering if there is any program I can use to remove the "add this" pop up. I'm not sure if that's what it's called but I'll give you an example. http://www.askmen.com/top_10/videogame/top-10-hardest-video-games-of-all-time.html Right above where it says top 10 hardest, there is several buttons with orange boxes. When you put your mouse ever the box or button a little pop up comes up and it doesn't go away. Do any of you guys know how to remove it? Thanks.

Are you talking about the buttons that say bookmark, email, print, rss? If so upgrade to the latest version of java and make sure you are using the most recent version of your browser.

[Cue the Firefox fanboys :TFH: ....]

Try another browser to see if you are having the same issue. This will help to narrow down the problem.

Download NoScript for firefox.

You manually allow certain website as you visit them, and it blocks everything else.

You could try clicking inside the popup then hit "ALT-F4" that might close it.

If you have weird pops on pages that should not have any you might have a spyware issue.

In that case it will be helpful to download and install a program like AD-AWARE
