I need to stop this pop up before i go insane.  I cannot find anything about it in my programs or anywhere else that I can access or know in my limited PC knowledge how to access.  Please tell me how to stop this. Thank you.

Hi kiki47z,

Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons).
3. Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
4. Check if it works.

If it works in “No add-ons” mode, go ahead with the steps provided in the article below:
