I don't see any pop-up in Quicken 2007, R7 and to the best of my knowledge
never have. This is probably a stretch, because I have no knowledge that
Quicken uses Internet Explorer settings, but I do have the IE 8.0.7601.17514
pop-up blocker on.
Windows 7 64-bit, SP1
Windows Live Mail 14.0.8064.0206 (I know it's old, but it works for me.)
Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.647.0
Other than the above, I have no clue what gives you a pop-up and not me.
Well, let's draw a deep breath and relax - yes, we all paid for Q. (But
less than $100 for the functionality is a great deal!). But, if this gives
Intuit some additional income and is not TOO invasive and keeps the product
afloat (hey, Microsoft Money 2011 doesn't have pop ups....), then I'm
willing to overlook it. (I acknowledge each individual's tolerance for 'too
btw, as an aside, my friendly New York State Thruway is starting running ads
in their tollbooths - first up is a Geico sign at the booth when you get
your ticket. It's a sign of the times. (no pun intended).
Ads are jammed down my throat everywhere I go. At least Firefox has
anti-ad add-ons, so I don't have ads flashing at me when browsing the web.
But ... I just got another Mint-spam-ad telling me something about IRAs.
Grrrrr. I wish we could turn these off, and I wonder what's started
them all of a sudden.
Cheap software or not, I don't want to see giant pop-up ads in Quicken.
I'm running QP2011 R7. I can't imagine they'd spam Premiere as opposed
to Deluxe, etc. Regardless, my plan is to downgrade to Deluxe with
Q2012, as I don't believe I use the extra features and thus will save
No spams today though. :-)
I too have no intention of using Mint (though I have an account there, so
I can keep up with what it does). But if you read enough posts from
Quicken users, you'll discover that many users are not only not "advanced
users"; some can barely tie their shoes ... Quicken-wise. For those users
(and those who claim Quicken costs too much), Mint could very well be a
better alternative to Quicken.

Intuit thinks those customers might benefit from?
