works ok for me, have you installed any new progs lately?, maybe something has changed a setting somewhere.

if you have windows XP, try a system restore to before this started happening.

why dont you just get the google tool bar. It save a lot of time and you can configure it the way you like it even has a pop up stopper.

Try running Adaware and Spybot:

click here

click here

Also check your Hosts file, go to explorer and search 'Hosts' without the quotes. If there's any other entry apart from '127.0.0.1 localhost' let us know.
