Quick Q: I've noticed recently - past week or so - that  when I click a 
link from email then go back to reading my email while I wait for the site 
to load, the browser will keep trying to bring focus back to itself (thus 
popping over my email). I'm using IE 5.5/Win98 and haven't recently 
upgraded it nor do I recall changing the settings. These are largely sites 
I haven't had this problem with in the past, so I'm wondering if it's 
something in my settings (just because I don't recall changing them doesn't 
mean I didn't) or if they've 'improved' their sites. Basically, can anyone 
help me make this go away?

<tip type="software installation - Win9x">
If you're having trouble with an installer freezing, you may be able 
bludgeon it into your system by copying the install to a temp folder on 
your hard drive (if it's on a CD or Zip - not necessary if it was a 
download) and installing it from Safe Mode.  Some installers seem to hang 
because of driver conflicts, and of course Safe Mode disables all but the 
bare minimum.
