My family all use my computer and recently I am getting pop ups,for example on startup //http media.fastclick "do you want to block spam?" Also pop ups offering free screensavers.I suspect it has something to do with MSN Messenger.If so how can I prevent/block it? Thanks, Peter.

Save the file and restart your PC.
