    Netters,

    My Win 2000 professional system is infected with some anti-spyware and
    anti-bannerware virus at work. McAfee antivirus is declaring my drives virus
    free, and some effort has been made to provide anti pop-up protection using
    Yahoo's anti-pop block. The annoying and intractable infection is able to open
    Internet Explorer 6 and advertise anti-spyware incessantly. Dialog boxes are
    completely ignored, and the spyware appears to be going through an installer
    protocol. This only appears to happen when I am connected to the net: As, when
    I detach from the network, I am spared the incessant pop up windows.

    Is this experience unique? Is there a cure? What is happening? This appears
    new to me.
