Application Information Popups (ie NOT internet popups)

    Can anyone help? (I do apologise if this has already been answered, but
    trying to find this was hard, mainly giving me regular popups)

    Many applications popup [Yes | No] Popups or [Cancel | Continue] etc, etc
    and while a machine is not doing anything else these are fine, but when you
    are busy typing often any key, or an Enter will choose the default offered.

    I find this rather annoying when I am busy typing something (like this) and
    you see something pop up and before your brain can read and answer it and
    click the answer you've already typed something and your choice has been made
    for you.

    My question is, can these be sent to the background (like MSN Messenger
    behaves when a new contact types something - it DOES NOT annoy you but waits
    behind until you are ready).

    Unfortunately (sorry, I'm an Aussie and we usually ask and answer a question
    in the same breathe - "How you doing? Alright!") I guess this may be down to
    the application writers ("oh we'll be smart, we'll pop it up above ANY other
    application, even the current one they are using").

    Has Vista looked in to this?

    Thanks heaps, I will get off of my soapbox now

    And yes, I'm alright.
