When Microsoft word attacks!

This is rather strange, and it's been happening a lot and it bothers me.

Everytime I visit a website that has a lot (or any) pop-ups, my pop up blocker will block it, then strangely, microsoft word will start trying to 'install' then IE will error and close.

I already have microsoft word installed, every time I load it though it 'installs' too.

I have tried to let MW 'install' when these popup instances have occured, and it also errors, saying I do not have a disk in the drive.

Please, I would really like this to stop, it's very tiresome to have to bash the 'esc' key to stop Microsoft word installing, only to have the popups freeze my IE and close all of my windows.

I have a Windows XP, and I run on A DSL connection. My popup blocker is called 'Microsoft Security Center'

Thank you very much <3
