Pop up Blocker

  GeeKay+Dee 13:28 09 Jun 2007


Can anyone offer any advice on how to block pop ups from a site called CiD???

I currently have to add manually to my blocked list each site that they advertise.

Is there any way that I can block anything coming from this site?

I've got NTLGaurd running.

In Firefox, pop ups are blocked from Tools>Options>Content tab and in IE from Tools>Internet Options>Privacy tab.

Firefox's standard pop up blocker works fine for me..:-)

need to exclude an infection first though?

agree with stuartli,ive never had a pop up using firefox which makes me think GeeKay+Dee must be using a different browser
as p;3 says rule out the infection first as a pop up blocker will be masking the issue i assume

as the comp has pop ups I am assuming it has gotten infected, unless proved other wise

A lot of common malware programs won't detect the CiD parasite.

This fix got rid of CiD for me:

Download and run NoLop.exe from here
click here

Also, open Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

Look for a program which looks like Windows Live! Messenger including CiD, then delete it.

AVG Spyware free also found files that Adaware/Spybot failed to locate.
