unwanted adverts appear

  Billp64 11:16 20 Jun 2006

Running windows XP home all up to date, windows defender, spybot and Norton's anti virus. Home page ok etc.

While on web an ad suddenly appears and interups if click off another comes. All of above checks will not clear any ideas what to try.
This has happened on more than one site.
Thanks for your help.

I use the Google toolbar that has a popup stopper which works fine for 99%, plus easy to type in a search. It is free from th egoogle site.

Sorry I should have said that pop-ups are blocked and even tried higher settings but the same ad keeps coming back. It is often a sex sight but click the x and it opens allsorts, shopping etc.

Sounds to me as if you need to run your malware programs. You may have picked up a `nasty` if it is the same pop-up on several different sites.

If you download the Trend Micro Cleanup Engine click here and the most recent Pattern File click here and run these it may well help. It does take some time to complete though.
