  • >Just recently my windows vista home premium started to act up.  At the desktop before when you click on an icon it will take you to were u are going.  Now, when you click on to the same icon a window pops up with options, the top option is to open the icon.  These window pop ups are everywhere now and are very annoying.  Even when beiing at a website, anything that you click comes up with a window pop up with options.  How can I eliminate these annoying window pop ups?
