Hi,

I'm getting pop up boxes on a regular basis, I've ran Spybot, Adaware, and Windows Defender with no result, their no big deal, mostly internet gambling, Vodaphone, Ebay etc but I find having things on my computer that shouldn't be there annoying, I have Zone Alarm, AVG anti virus and Spyware Blaster installed, the O/S is Windows XP Home edition,the only other unusual thing is that I sometimes get a warning message saying LICENS~1.exe-Dll has failed to initialise as far as I'm aware this only started with the pop ups, can anyone help please.

AVG Antispyware and Superantispyware both detected problems, pop ups now eliminated, thanks for your speedy reply and the links.
