    I don't know much about computers, but recently, I have noticed that
    everytime I open my browser and connect to the web, multiple pop-up ads
    appear. A large proportion of these seem to be from a site called
    manipulatingthesurface.com. I have increased my security settings but I
    don't know how to stop these ads or why they have started appearing. Any
    help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Jeannie
