In recent weeks on this forum, it would seem that 'pop-ups' questions are being asked nearly every day, so there are a number of possible solutions available for a quick search in the archives.

Considering that you have stated, most methods for removal, then perhaps a download and scan of ADWCleaner click here and/or Malwarebytes anti-root kit click here might perhaps help resolve the issue.

Ditto - seems the most common, also others. Also tried every malware prog under the sun. Any ideas? Incredibly frustrating...

Hello Spuds and Drasko Cured it! The interesting clue was that there's not much chat about this issue on the forums. So I was thinking, it may not be software in the PC, so much as in the router. I think the router gets infected with a code that is triggered when certain sites are visited, then the PC gets Spybotted with an infection. Because routers are all different not so many get infected as say Windows PCs would.

Here's what I did (you can email me your medals of thanks!) 1. Run AdAware (free version) - others like Spybot free might have done the same but I couldn't get it to download - others haven't made similar comments elsewhere This found some 8 threats like cookie.adtech and cookie.webtrends etc - duly deleted

  1. Immediately reset my modem/router and reconfigured it. If you're not sure of the settings, check these out before re-setting so you can restore them as before - use or whatever your modem uses.

Problem SEEMS to be fixed......been using Chrome for an hour now (cross everything). Let me know if that works for you Drasko. Cheers Simon
