Don't worry, I should have a blocker anyway. Must get around to it. Always used the one with Google, but for some reason installing the toolbar on this new machine freezes internet access, and crashes the machine when I try to uninstall it.
Thanks for your advice. I had actually done a complete check of everything yesterday. Loads of things take ages to do/open and I often get fed up with waiting and exit, (Acrobat Reader is particularly long winded.) I've always put it down to the fact that it's an old, not very powerful pc, and it does seem to be worse since I installed a firewall. (Nothing to do with this thread I know, but thanks for your concern.)
As you will know when it comes to computers i know very little.I very rarely get pop ups as a mate sorted it for me so i was abit unsure what to do.I thought i rememered reading here to go into task manager this i did but not knowing for sure what to do i hit the log out button in task manger and all seems well.Learning very slowly thanks to you folks.cheers.
