help anyone?
For the past couple of days i have been pestered to death with internet explorer7 pop-ups..just installed Windows Defender, tried spybot, AVG Anti-spy.
Anyone know if you still get these damn pop-ups when using an alternative browser ie, firefox, i feel like i am getting nowhere ( Windows XP Home Service Pack 2 all updates done)

Thanks ppl

Try installing a HOSTS file. click here

You don't say which type of popups you're getting or from which sites. Do you have th IE7 popup blocker turned on? IE7 > Tools > Popup Blocker > Turn On.

the pops-up i am getting are from Internet Explorer, ie., golden Casino, adult-friendfinder, allsorts of junk, its only just started within the last couple of days, its so very annoying...IE7 pop-up blocker turned on, ive tried allsorts of downloaded programmes yet nothing seems to stop these damn things?
I am unsure how to install a Host file...been on pc for 5 years and never experienced this before.
