Freepay.Com pop-ups everywhere !!!

  Paul33 10:41 04 Jan 2007

Trying to help out a friend who is being plagued by pop-ups, mostly with URLs (win/buy ipods, PCs, etc).

I can't find any rogue processes running in Task Manager and Ad-Aware finds nothing so is what is driving these pop-ups ?

Any help would be appreciated.

download a pop up stopper from this sites downloads?.

I haven't checked personally but they assure me the IE6 pop-up blocker is enabled already ...... would that not work ?

I'm concerned that blockers will merely mask an activity I want to get rid of ..... I'd prefer to understand what is triggering the pop-ups and shoot it !!!

Try AVG antispy, run and delete all it finds

Ran the AVG Anti-Spy program which found and deleted the usual suspects but ...... also found something it called "TrackingCookie.LOP" and thats a name that I recall from the past !!!

If the PC is infected by LOP then whats the best way to get rid of it. I know its not easy.
