"Webpage you are viewing...trying to close"

    I was running IE6 and kept having a dialogue box appear stating that "The
    webpage you ar eviewing is trying to close". The option is to close or
    cancel. This was driving me mad! I then installed IE7 in the hope that this
    would be fixed.....

    Problem is still continuing...and frequently! Have tried to search for a
    solution on the internet, and have discovered that it is something to do with
    Java scripting. However, I have NO idea about programming and cannot find a
    solution that is easily understood and applied.

    Please, please, someone help me with this if you are aware of a solution.

    This could be caused by a virus, malware, or an add-on. Try running in No
    Add-ons mode and see whether it keeps happening. Read
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx for more
    troubleshooting information.

    You could also try scanning your computer with a program like Ad-aware and
    remove any malware found. Try also doing a virus scan to find out whether
    you are infected with a virus.

    For your information and anyone else who are thinking of trying it,
    upgrading to IE7 WILL NOT FIX ANY PROBLEMS you are having with IE6.

    I am experiencing the same issue but I don't believe it's adware or
    virus on my computer. When I am launching a webpage (intranet) with
    self-sign certificate, the "webpage you are viewing...trying to close" appear
    then another popup appear with the normal signin. After typing my login name
    and password, the java base intranet website did work fine. It's really more
    of annoying then anthing else.
    I put that internal ip address in as a "trusted" site. But I would like to
    find a permenant solution for this.
