I've just move to W7 and loaded up Chrome, Firefox, etc. But my snag is with IE9 and the PCA site. Every time I visit I get a popup asking if I want to pin PCA to my taskbar. I don't want to do that. I click the x but next time I get this prompt again. How do you stop it? I don't get this with other sites

In IE9, go to Tools and Block Pop-ups. It has stopped it on mine!!

In fact it is called Pop-up Blocker!

I have that set to medium block already.

Tried it at high setting and still PCA asks if I want to pin the site.

I think it's playing silly B's. I changed mine to Switch The Pop-up Blocker and it, too, was on high. It stopped it coming up. I went out of it and then came back again, the Pop-up came back. I have just tried it again, go out, come back and it has not come up this time!!

There must be a way to stop this feature from PCA.

I've pinned PCA to the task bar, I've unpinned it but still the large "try this" thing appears across the top of the site in IE9. I usually use the other browsers so this isn't major but nevertheless mighty irritating.

I had the same problem about 6 months ago and Got help on here on how to remove it.

Must be an age thing as I have forgotten how I did it.

Maybe try View.Web page privacy policy and see if it is allowed on that and stop it from running.It was somewhere on the toolbar but not just sure where.

It may have been just ticking compatibility mode but not sure.

Or maybe in private filtering.

Compatibility mode - thank you.

Does that mean that PCA is not compatible with IE9?
