Can't get rid of popups

  jaimie 05:42 30 Jun 2004

Further to my posting yesterday about unwanted ringtone popups I am also getting unwaned downloads of a games programme which does not have an option to refuse. I've run norton, spybot and adaware, deleted automove from the registry umpteen times but it still comes back. I think I have no option now but to reformat my C drive, I'm very p*ssed about this, unless anyone has any other suggestions please.
Kind regards

If you are using XP, disable System Restore before cleaning up your computer and registry, then set a new restore point.

Thanks gongoosler, but how do I disable restore?

jaimie, goto the Restore Page, on the laft hand side, click on System Restore Settings, there you can turn it off.
