Hi guys sorry to be a pain but I have posted on this site about pop up ads, I have then downloaded countless amounts of blocking software and yet it is continuing.
Is there anything else i can do that will put an end to this( not another software that promises no more ads) please please help as I am beginning to believe that these sites that do this are unstoppable and the disadvantages of the internet outweigh the advantages

control panel>admin tools>services

Find the messenger, then right click, properties, select service status as stop.

Then startup as disabled.

May solve your problem.

I find that the Google taskbar pop-up blocker and the setting in IE (Tools - Internet Options - Privacy) stops most pop ups for me. However if you are constantly getting new windows open and more pop ups then this could well be a sign that you have malware on your computer. Running a good anti-spyware programe like Ad-Aware, Spybot or SuperiorAntiSpyWare or the Microsoft Defender should be the first thing that you do.
