You are right in what your saying, because that default may well be a pop from MSN, which is a genuine Windows box rather than html window. You can be typing in your word processor (and if your like me, not watching the screen).

I have had users that have been adament that they haven't loaded any extra toolbars or emoticon packages while I have been telling them off for misuse of work property. It wasn't until I saw this happen that I realised just how easy it is to accidentally instal some of these things.

I was talking to one person in the office and just happened to be watching a girl who was reading from her notes while typing, I saw a pop up flash on screen, she didn't see anything until she looked back at the screen and realised that her database entry had got out of sequence in the fields. But she had no idea why, just buttumed she had made a mistake. When I looked to see what the pop up had been about she had a window in the back ground to a baby care products site. I reloaded the page to encourage the pop up to come back. As it happens all this one did was ask if you wanted the browser default page set to this site. But it could have been absolutely anything.
