My wife keeps getting a annoying pop up.
I do not get it in my account at all but she gets it all the time.
It all to do with spyware. A big screen come up saying your computer is effected with spyware etc.
It is hell of a job to get rid of , because everything you click wants to install spyware software.
I have run all the usual prog' and as i said i don't get it at all in my account,
One of the addresses was click here and i have blocked this address but she is now getting other spyware program keep coming up now.

any ideas how i can stop this happening.

Thank you

Check for any unusual entries in msconfig Startup tab, (Start > run > type msconfig> click on startup tab). By unusual I mean entries that are a string of random letters followed by .exe. If you find any and a Google search brings up no results, untick the entry. You may also need to delete any registry entries, post back if unsure
