    shit. every time i open i.e., or outlook express a fucking popup window occurs for me to enter to win some multimedia system.

    i ran adaware, and this shit still pops up.

    NO i will NOT discontinue to use, i.e. so that is not an option....


    I really dont know what to do.....any suggestions?

    Im this close to sending a death threat email to the url in the pop up ad.....

    ok, looked @ the source code, found the url for a advertising agency, wrote them a threatening email, along with a copy of the source code....

    if I dont hear from them in 2 days....

    I will be making collect calls to their office in Canada....

    I got a hardon for these fuckers.


    I did NOT visit any porn sites (withing a few months) this shit just started heppening today

    I did NOT download any programs, which may carry spyware

    I DID run adaware and this shit still isnt gone...

    I went into my control panel and looked for any suspicious programs I could unintstall.....nothing.



    its on.

    go to www.kephyr.com and download bazooka spyware scanner. Run it, and click the links it gives you to show how to get rid of whatever is on your comp.

    Also, get spybot search and destroy from download.com, and update it.

    if that doesnt fix it, i'd reformat the computer

    and even if you think you didnt install any programs that have spyware, you may be wrong

    i was surprised that my new audigy ls soundcard driver had wildtangent spyware

    my logitech mx duo keyboard and mouse driver also had spyware :(

    these fucking companies are selling out to the adware people, and its quite lame

    Hey tony, try to download the prog called System Mechanic 4 and run the various spyware adware removal options. After you do that, run the Registry cleaner from that proggy. It should help a lot. Empty your cache and delete the cookies as well.

    If it doesn't fix it, definitely call those fuckers :)

    Gee I thought this forum covered this topic two months ago. Go to www.tomcoyote.org and follow their instructions after downloading the HijackThis! program. It's free and it works. Really.
