POP Unders

  old48 20:01 29 May 2006

I have several pop ups/unders namely pesttrap, winsoft antivirus & the spyguard. Does anyone know how to get rid of them, my spyware protection and my virus protection don't seem to be able to get rid of them. I appreciate they are not dangerous but they are very annoying.

...Try Spybot s&d, Ad-Aware, A2...there are more available and all have slightly different lookup databases.
If one does not find the problem, then another one probably will.

And those I've mentioned can be downloaded free.

Have you downloaded any of these Winfixer/Spysheriff/Spytrooper/Spyfalcon/Spyaxe...etc

These are known to be rogue programs enticing you to buy a full package to remove the problems....its a scam !!!

You really need to follow Vogs advice,the Malware experts will tell you how to clean your system.

If you have downloaded anything recently relating to the problems you have..please post the name of the program.
