I have found that Ad-Aware sorts most things related to spyware.
For pop ups I use Mozilla Firefox browsere rather than ie

The best pop-up stopper for IE6 is Google toolbar click here

To get rid of spyware & malware you need to use more than one tool, the more the better.

1) SpywareBlaster click here

2) SpyBot Search & Destroy click here

3) AdAware SE click here

4) Ewido click here

Download, install, UPDATE and run them.

furryfriend, your question should be put as a separate post in your own name and not in somebody else`s post.

Hi, welcome to the Forum - don't be put-off, you have not been told-off. At the left of the Forum page you will see under Helproom, in blue - Contact the Forum Editor, click on that and then ask the FE for a copy of the Forum Rules. He will be more than happy to send you a copy of your own to keep.

You will in fact find that this is a very happy and user-friendly place to be. We were all newbies once.
