I must firstly say, I only know a little about computers. I have had ythe computer for about 6 months now and use the internet at least for 2-3 hours a day. recently, it has started to run very slow and when ever I close a box, I get streams of popups (40 or more at a time) all from the same place. I have a pop up blocker ad this just has a little box that pops up for a second in the bottom left of the screen which says pop up blocked from such a place and and option to view it. when I get a stream of them at once, these boxes fill the side of the screen and after a short while 30 seconds of constant pop ups (1 or 2 a second) the bar at the bottom of the screen with the start button on it disapeers. I am running a packard bell PC with an intel pentium 4, windows XP and run BT yahoo broadband. I have done some searches on this site but I have already done suggested info such as:
delete temperory internet files/cookies
downloaded spybot S & D
downloaded adaware and run both
when ever I run them they always find 1 or 2 problems which I delete although if I go on the internet straight away after running them, I have the same problem. I can't use the E-mail as I get streams of pop-ups which cause the page top freeze and it says that the program is not responding and the internet and mail close and I'm left with a blank screen with no start buttom.
This is getting really frustrating now.
Thanks in advance for any help.
