IE7 is currupt maybe?

Best way to see if this is a virus or not, is to get a different browser like FireFox and see if that works.

If you have nothing to contribute, don't post. It's very obvious you don't know what you're talking about.

Why not run a virus scan? It couldn't hurt. Personally, I doubt that is the problem, but if he is getting pop ups then it is always a possibility.
