Default IE focus stealing

Hey All,

I have been getting driven insane by Internet Explorer stealing the focus whenever a new page loads. I might be reading a do***ent of broswing a forum, but if IE loads a new page in another window when its finished it brings it into focus.

Most annoying when you typing on ICQ and you miss half a message, because IE sticks it nose in.

I was told on another forum the TweakUI would fix the problem.

But I downloaded it for W2k and I couldn't find any settings to change this.

Can anyone help ?

I think the focus thingie is in java(script) on the webpage, maybe disabling javascript in the IE options
