    ok, im getting pop ups like a mother fucker.

    ran adaware.
    ran spycop.
    went through ad/remove programs, delted all unnecessary shit or things that may have come with adware support...
    ran norton av.
    re-installed all IE6.1 w/ SP1 components

    WTF else is there that will find something that all the above won't?

    I was using the free popup stopper from the iwon.com site pretty well. Otherwise, from another forum, someone was complaining about hijacked homepages, so I went over to www.tomcoyote.org and downloaded HijackThis! and followed the forum instructions. My computer runs faster down. But that site seems very saavy about viruses and shit like that... read their forums.

    B, your supposed to be a computer nerd like me.

    sounds to me like a browser hijack they are a bitch to get rid of.
    I'd do a search of your local hard disc's for any files created in the past 2 days or so, look for folders that you don't remeber creating etc..

    I had this same problem about a week ago. I just gave up and did a reformat. Have you tried system rollback yet? If your hard drive is partitioned then you can reformate without losing files. thats what i did and got my comp up and running back to normal in about 4hrs.

    I only get pop ups when I visit hondaswap and its about 2 or 3. Not too many. Only site I get them on.

    I'm running just IE6, and that's it.

    2 or 3? should be 1 per 24 hours :(

    if you guys clicked google ads 1 time a day, i could afford to turn off the pop under :(

    30,000 page views a day, lucky to see 75-100 ad clicks :(
