Question Why do I see the "pop" 25 times a visit?

UPDATED on 7-5-04

Please relax and carefully read this enitre post. Did the thought ever occur to you that their might be something wrong with your system?

Lets work together and talk about some facts.

1. New: We use a single pop-under which sets a cookie and only displays once during a given 24 hour period. Various colors and content automatically rotate to satisfy the desires of our resident color experts and micro managers.

If you close your browser down and return you will NOTsee the pop-under again during a given 24 hour period. If your system is set up not to accept cookies you will see the pop-under numerous times. Please note: geek/talk requires cookies for proper operation. We don't care what kind of navigation you perform on geek/talk, our exstensive testing confirms these statements.

2. If you wash cookies while geek/talk is open you will see it again.

3. We have performed exstensive testing on geek/talk using the following browsers with the latest SP under the Windows operating systems. We have confirmed that geek/talk works fine and the pop-under only displays once in a given 24 hour period with these supported browsers:

Netscape Navigator - Supported:


Internet Explorer - Supported:



Sorry, not supported by developer or us.

The browser usage for geek/talk is:

92.1% use IE
5.8% use N
2.1% use something else

geek/talk requires your browser to enable "cookies" and JavaScript. If you are still having problems try these techniques in the exact order given:

1) Restart your operating system.

2) Immediately launch a single instance of your browser and empty your Temporary Internet files and History folder. You may also wish to lower the storage number to 50 MB for your Temporary Internet files.

3) Enable all the default options for your browser and apply/save them.

4) Close your browser down

5) Launch your browser and return to geek/talk to see if your issues are fixed.

If your issues are still not fixed we suggest that you try some/all of the following procedures:

1) Upgrade to the latest SP (Service Pack) for your browser

2) Upgrade to the latest stable version of your browser.

3) Uninstall your browser. Restart your operating system. Download a fresh archive of your favorite browser. Install same using the defaults.

4) Scan your system and remove all "TheftWare" and or "SpyWare applications using Ad-Aware at:


5) Scan your sytem for viruses using the latest profiles. Scan your system on a regular basis and keep your profiles current.

6) Make 2 backups of everything on your hard disk. Reformat your HD and reinstall your OS and all your software.

Good luck
