Default Please Help Me - Pop Ups:(

Hey I'm new here.. anyways i have a major problem with pop-ups. I will leave my computer on but exit EVERY program close all IE windows basically leave virtually nothing running but i come back to my computer and theres over 50 pop ups. I get a pop up about every 4 minutes on average either from "Party Poker" "WinAntiVirusPro" "E-Bay" And just about a million other sites.

I've scanned my computer with Ad-Aware SE, XoftSpy, Spysweeper, TrendMicro, and all of them foudn and removed all the problems but still i keep getting the pop ups and i don't know what to do anymore.

Please, help.

- joey.

I've had that problem before and I've used spysweeper, ad-aware and windows defender and they didn't get rid of it. I would recommend using a program called HiJackThis. You can download it at: http://www.download.com/HijackThis/3...ml?tag=lst-0-1
after you do a scan you can copy and paste the log on this website and someone can help (sorry I don't know how to read those logs) or you can go to this website and paste the results there. http://hjt.networktechs.com/

Hope that helps,
Troy


P.S. you may want to consider using another browser such as firefox, avant, opera or something more secure. IE 6 has alot of security vulnerabilities IMO and all my security problems have come from that. Just my .02 though.

Don't download stupid things and you won't have popups.

IE 6 and Firefox ver.5 also automatically come with blockers.
