    you have spyware on your computer

    Use these to check for and remove spyware.

    All of these are ones that I personally use and all are free.After you install any of them,make sure you update them to get the full affect.

    AVG Removes I-Worm/Stration · BackDoor.Generic3.GBB and .GBC · Worm/Generic.FX · Exploit.WMF

    http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/...

    Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    i'll solve your problem.. its plain and simple.. get a mac!!!!! no pop ups no viruses. i just got the mac os x tiger and i'll never go back to windows. everything is built into my monitor and best of all no system crashes..i can do so much more with my mac than i ever could with windows. with windows you constantly have to upgrade, or buy something to stop something only for something else to come up. all the software for mac is built and made from apple. i bet bill gates has a mac

    most virus are spread through IE. IE is not a safe browser. you should use a more secure browser to protect your PC from virus.

    i recommand you to use firefox with Google toolbar. firefox can block any any popup and disable any virus and adware, spyware on webpage, so, firefox is much safer than IE browser. as you know, most of virus spread throught internet and webpage.

    besides, firefox is much smaller than IE, so it run faster than IE.

    download firefox for free, Just have a try:

    Merry Xmas !!! Happy NewYear !!!
