I have a PC here at work, which seems incaple of blocking pop-ups (or maybe pop-unders?) from a site called summersinrangoon.com
I have tried, pop-up stopper pro as well as the google pop-up blocker taskbar but all to no avail. The pop-ups only occur when you click OFF Internet Explorer (thereby shutting down the google blocker one would assume?)
I have run the latest Ad-aware upates and Spyware Blaster on the machine but even these don't stop it.
What I want to know is if there is some way I can "block" the domain summersinrangoon.com from being accessed by the computer, thereby stopiing the pop-ups from happening. Apparently it happens all the time and no way around it has yet been found.
You could edit your hosts file (do a Windows search for HOSTS) and change summersinrangoon.com to point to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer. This will mean that when anything requests that domain it won't be found as you are pointing it back to your local PC.
Have you run any virus scanner atall?? There are two online virus scanners which are very good. I use housecall by trend micro.
But I would recommend you use the one by panda software as it's capable of scanning more than just your HDD's, it also offers comprehensive help should it find a problem & gives clear removal instructions.
Yeah I run Norton 2003 Pro and have also scanned with AVG.
There's no virus, no adware and no spyware to be found! Just an annoying popup (or 2 at once mostly) which occurs at shutting down IE stage (have been testing the PC on netscape and had nothing happen with that - I think it's only on IE as I also don't seem to be having any problems with Opera but then I'm only testing that now)
