My computer is being bombarded with pop ups, this is now happening before I click onto internet explorer, as soon as the pc see's its online (broadband connection), they start appearing, I close them, but they come back & usually the computer starts slowing down or it freezes. I then have to re-boot the machine.
I have run AVG 6.0, Adaware & Spybot search & destroy all to no avail, they all find various things to delete but not the problem we have managed to aquire.
Try CWShredder available for download here. You might also like to download and run Hijackthis from the same location.
You should also install a pop-up stopper. The one I recommend for IE is the Google toolbar.
You should also disable windows messaging service (this ios nothing to do with MSN messanger) as this can be used to produce pop-ups. There are 2 apps to stop the messager service listed in General: Essential Security software. You may also want to run some of the online virus scanners and trojan scanners just to see if they find anything your current malware apps don't.
