  1. Popups


    I am suddenly receiving constant popups supposedly from antivirus programs telling me that my computer is infected and that I should download/run their program. I downloaded and ran the Windows Defender Emergency Scan application which while running identified "26 infected files" but when done identified "0" infections.

    Is there a popup blocker which I can use to stop this?

    Or is this just treating the symptoms, and if so is there something else I can / should do?

    Thanks.

    :)

    File Explorer jump list doesn't consistently show location popups

    Thanks for your reply.

    Whatever "it" is exactly, all I know is, it does not behave consistently. This is so across multiple systems. Also, it isn't just recent items, but pinned items that fail to produce the popup on mouse over (when they should).

    If the File Explorer setting you're referring to is "Show pop-up description for folder and desktop items," I already have that turned on.

    Based on my tests, I tend to think this is a bug. Did you try reproducing it?

    1. Right click File Explorer in taskbar to open the jump list.
    2. Mouse over any of the pinned or recent folders and see if the popup with the location path appears (as shown in the screenshot with the original post).
    3. If it does appear, close out of the jump list by left clicking anywhere outside of it.
    4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you find the popups not appearing. In my experience, it always occurs, even if not right away. And all too often when I need them most.
