  1. Dear rick.lane, I said that FYI only, so you all could get the whole scenario, since I didn't before and you mentioned these other browsers in your first answer. BTW whenever I install(ed) Maxthon I never set it as the default browser and I always keep it that way in its settings. As I couldn't find anything about it on Maxthon's interface, I thought the alert we're talking about here might be somehow hard coded within Maxthon. So when it showed up today I found in the Windows 10 Task Manager there was this MxUp app running and its properties informed it's located in C:\Users\XXXXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Maxthon5\Public\MxUp (where XXXXXXXX is my user name in the system). The folder has a config file that reads: [Maxthon] LastStart=20180810083950 tips=0 RepairShortcutTime=1 SetDefaultTime=1534164871 RepairTime=1532949660 [MxHotnews] interval=-1 Here's the guy! Now I wonder how I can stop it.
  2. Where can I enable the underlined letters for commands on the Maxthon (main and tabs) menus? I have the correspondent setting enabled in Windows 10 (Ease of Access section), and you can see that Google Chrome's main menu shows the underlined letters. Other applications show them too, like CorelDRAW and SoftMaker Office 2018, so I guess it's something with Maxthon only.
  3. I said: "Every now and then this alert appears in the Windows 10 notification area", so it's clear that my system is Windows 10. My default browser is Chrome, I rarely open Edge and I use Maxthon with sites Google's browser is not good at, and for some Maxthon native resources, like closing tabs by double-clicking, Boss Key and others. AFAIK Windows never tries to change my default browser, it only shows some pop-up suggestion for me to do so, but, apart from this little intrusiveness, it's not a system-wide pop-up like Maxthon's, since it only shows up on some Microsoft websites. But the most important thing here for me is that I know my default browser is not at risk, so I don't want Maxthon to now and then interrupt me with such a creepy warning.
  4. Every now and then this alert appears in the Windows 10 notification area. I want to stop it for good. How can I? TIA.
