    Disable MSN.Com Pop-Up

    I hope this is the correct section to post this, here is my issue. I receive a pop-up / dialog [see attach] when my modem is off or goes off, the dialog asks which browser / program do I want to use to open with. If a browser is selected, it takes me to the msn-com homepage.

    I'm confident MS simply wants me to use there homepage as well as their new browser (Edge), I also suspect this pop up effects my modem by way of disconnecting my internet connect when the computer is idle for any short period of time.

    I would think it is a value in the registry that needs changed to disable this, however not certain where to look. I have asked around in other forums and thus far no one shares this same issue, wondering if any advice or insights could be given.

    I thank you for your time and help.

    Why does McAfee Web Advisor keep popping up trying to block something on

    MSN France: Hotmail, Outlook, actualités, météo, divertissement_ is supposed to be safe, but why does McAfee WebAdvisor keep popping up saying it is blocking something...when I try to view details, I only get the
    "Site Unkown" message and can't looks suspicious to me...McAfee hasn't found any malicious files...I've disabled some plug ins, but it still pops up...and i noticed the link has changed, even though my IE 11 is set to
    MSN France: Hotmail, Outlook, actualités, météo, divertissement . This just happened today, and I can't find anything on McAfee site...any ideas?

  3. Trojan:JS/Flafisi.D popped this up on my page... it said "flash update" and then this Trojan was thrown.

    I think you guys need to test ALL your advertisers pages. This is crazy. You block it and give away the virus?

    Top right hand corner
    Click on the 3 dots
    Click and scroll down to settings
    Scroll down to Advance Settings
    Click on View Advance Settings
    Show home button on
    Type in space under that
    Then click Save

    Then scroll down to make sure what you want to search with
    Next time should open on that page
    Also you can use IE11
    By doing the first part above
    But before you get to settings
    Click Open with Internet Explorer

    Is SeaMonkey your browser ?
    If you select SeaMonkey > check the box "Always use this app" > click OK.

    What happens after that ?
    Does it take you to homepage ?

    Yes, SeaMonkey is my primary browser. And were I too select that the browser itself would open with MSN as the homepage. It's a subtle thing but very annoying, I don't need to have a pop up if my modem goes out, and don't need one when I boot up and my modem hasn't fully employed.

    I've blocked the msn homepage, however it hasn't effected this annoying pop up. It's clearly MS way of forcing their products on me, I simply don't know how to deactivate that pop up. My guess is a value in the registry needs changed, but where?

    Just to make sure I understand you correctly...................

    I have set SkyMonkey as your homepage and it works. Yes ?
    When your modem is going out, you will get that dialog and will popup. But that only happens when your modem is going out. Otherwise you have no issue. Yes ?

    Have you talked to your internet service provider about modem going out issue.

    Disable MSN.Com Pop-Up

    This is something that came with my upgrade to Win 10, I've been living with it for the past six month's or so however would love for it to go away. In my opinion it points to a value in the registry, but I don't know where, for example:
