Pop-Up problems!

  Eveready Bunny 03:05 22 Jun 2005

Hi all (again)

Recently i have been inundated by pop-up windows when using IE. I know that i can use the pop-up blocker provided by many programs, but they usually block legitimate pop-ups too! Secondly i have spy-bot, norton and adaware spyware tools but none seem to get rid of the pop-ups. How do i get rid of these annoying things!

I have heard of registry cleaning, but not sure whether i can do it.

PS i know i can switch to firefox, but i don't like it!

I think you've answered your own question by saying you can use pop-up blockers.

The latest version of IE has a good pop up stopper included.The Google toolbar has an excellent stopper too.Remember you can set the pop up stoppers to allow pop ups from sites you trust or want/need pop ups to work on.

At the very least you need to use a pop up stopper now to see if that solves your current problem.If you still get them with a stopper active then you are probably infected with malware
