Default Pop Ups Like Crazy!help!

Ok receiently I have been getting lots and lots of pop ups that randomly just pop up. for example my homepage is google.com and when I open up my internet explorer I get like 2 random pop ups not related what so ever. I use spybot search and destroy. When I search for spyware it goes normally but when it reaches the file C2.lop it stays there for like 10 minutes which didn't happen before so I always end up closing it. Can someone tell me what else can be causing this and wtf a C2.lop file it. C2.lop seems like it loops forever!


PLEASE HELP ME!

Ad-aware

Ive found that to be better than Spybot S&D, Try that

If you havent formatted in a while, U mite as well format too, Sometimes your comp. just gets clogged up with too much junk, and its good to clean it all up and start agen

Here is a free antivirus that is good too

Use both adaware and spybot because neither of them has the same definitions as the other one.
