My computer recently began displaying a small window when i point my mouse cursor at an internet link, or system button. It displays a list of 5 websites "yahoo, kensington, cnet, mapquest and cnnfn", and 2 blank spaces. If you right click on these, a new IE window opens for that website. The blank ones do nothing.

Any ideas?

Welocme Blake. Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Tell you what to be sure lets take a few steps here, before posting a HijackThis log we will usually have members take a few steps, lets try them shall we, in my signature is a link to steps 1-4 after taking the four steps repost a new HijackThis log, I would reccomend you use this instead of one of the programs in step-3.
use this for step #3 Step#3 Tool then go on to 4, during the 4 step process and then repost please.

If I were a betting man I would BET BIG that its something you downloaded and I would try looking in my Control Panel, many supposedly "Free" this and "Free" that that you find on the internet really mean, please let us download something on your PC to gather your info for us! Those creeps! :mad:

I have the same problem. My computer recently began displaying a small window when i point my mouse cursor at an internet link, or system button. It displays a list of 5 websites "yahoo, kensington, cnet, mapquest and cnnfn", and 2 blank spaces. If you right click on these, a new IE window opens for that website. The blank ones do nothing. :tazz:

According to the Kensington website, the unwanted popup menu can occur when the batteries are low in the mouse. This happened to me and changing the batteries solved the problem.

Life is good. I thought my machine was seriously hosed. I spent 90 minutes today chasing spyware and viruses thinking that they were the cause of the annoying popup. I also spent a bunch of time searching Google with no luck. I found one reference to problems with a mouse driver which made me go look at the Kensington website. Bingo. Problem solved!
