Internet Explorer !!!!!!!!!!!

  enait 00:15 21 Jul 2004

My internet connection within control panel keeps defaulting to never dial up a connection. It is irritating having to turn on the connection every time, this has only appeared recently. Also Zone Alarm keeps asking me if I want to let Search Assistant have access, I keep saying no. Another annoying thing is the Microsoft Internet Explorer pop up windows, I have had two appear tonight offering me hard porn!!! I have Spyhunter and Zone Alarm plus Nortons Antivirus to keep gremlins out. Anyone have any solutions as to why these things are happening???????????

1. Using a combination of anti-spyware products, such as Ad-aware, SpyBot, CWShredder, AboutBuster.

2. Consider switching from IE to Mozilla. IE, Outlook and Outlook Express are frequent targets for malicious software and their weaknesses are well known. I switched to Mozilla Firefox a week ago, and have had few problems since ... plus, Firefox stops popups.

3. COnsider upping your security settings.
