on-access message scanner..........
« on: April 20, 2009, 11:26:27 PM »
I tried searching this topic trying to avoid posting, but, I have follwed the instructions concerning this pop up nightmare and I haven't clicked on anything in the standard shield-customize-advanced....Nada...........Is there anything else that I may have lost my ever lovin' mind and clicked on that I can uncheck now? These popups are irritating to say the least and interfere. I'm in the boonies and am on dial up....Things don't move so fast, the popups can take some time to dissappear  :P Thank you for your time..............T

Well these messages are disabled by default, so you have been doing some tweaking, this option is also in the Web Shield - Show detailed info on performed actions, see image. The option is also in the Internet Mail provider, so you should also check that you haven't tweaked those too.
