Hi, I am using vista home premium with sp1, i have AVG 8 free edition and Spyware doctor also Spyware Terminator.
My problem has recently started . when browsing the web as soon as I open the site i want a pop up fills the screen. and when i try to click it off i get the message do you want to close all tabs. which then takes me back to the start.
the pop ups are not all the same, they advertise various goods.
How can I stop this please.
Regards

Can you right click the item in the bottom toolbar and select close? If you use the google toolbar it also blocks pop ups. You don't list a firewall I assume your using windows own, you could try Zonealarm to stop future nasties.

VoG. Many thanks, I downloaded your link and it found 41 infections that my other two progrms had missed.
grey george. I do use the Windows firewall at present but I will try Zonealarm instead.

Kind regards
