    i'm getting pop-ups in internet explorer even when internet explorer isn't
    open!!!! i use spybot s& d and norton, and 35 pop-ups in 5 minutes. this
    didn't start until today. what can i do to eliminate this? also, is there a
    way to take the url of a pop-up and put it into a block url address
    somewhere so it can't pop-up anymore? ty

    Hello,

    You may also wish to try Ad-Aware (www.lavasoftusa.com) or Microsoft's
    Anti-Spyware (www.microsoft.com/spyware). If those don't work, you may
    wish to try Super Ad Blocker with SUPERAntiSpyware. It should resolve
    this problem for you:
    http://www.superadblocker.com

    Super Ad Blocker offers a fully functional 15-day trial. You can scan
    and clean your computer and then remove Super Ad Blocker if you do not
    wish to keep it.

    You may wish to perform your scan in Safe Mode. We offer a free product
    that makes booting to Safe Mode easy:

    It helps to know what you have in order to get rid of it. Look at the
    running processes in windows and msconfig and see if there's something
    there that shouldn't be. The really nasty stuff won't show and may
    kill msconfig, but some adware is easy to remove. Try that first.

    If that doesn't work download and run "process explorer" (freeware)
    www.sysinternals.com It allows you to see everything running in
    windows and will allow you to kill running processes. Once it is
    killed it can no longer protect itself and can be removed (manually,
    if you identified it already) using more conventional tools like
    spybot or adware.

    Adware removal tools are more effective from safe mode, because safe
    mode should prevent the adware/trojan from starting or protecting
    itself.

    If you can't get it identified or removed, download and run "hijack
    this" http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html That will give you
    a log file of running processes. If you still can't identify the
    problem you post your hijack this log of running processes and let
    someone more knowledgeable have a look at it. DON'T just post it
    here, read the instructions on the web site "Hijack This Tutorial And
    How To Post Your Log File" first!

    Try using "windows cleanup", and clean out all your ad/spy
    garbage once and for all: http://cleanup.stevengould.org.

    Other than a request for a donation, it is basically a free
    program, that actually works as it's intended.
