... in that program look at the Browser Helper Object tab to see if anything is running there that looks odd. Also look in the startup to see if anything in there doesn't look right. Post what you find if you like.

Alternatively, a program called hijackthis will output a log we can look at.

Hi Hubdean,

Recommend using Firefox browser from click here, it's faster than IE and has a built-in pop-up blocker.

Further to what Pauldonovan said there's a Hijackthis log tutorial in the 'Tutorials & Guides' section of the List of Lists at click here. Could be useful in explaining what you would get from using Hijackthis. If you've never met it before the List of Lists is a great place for freestuff of all kinds.

thanks a lot
hijackthis sean to have done the job
no popups as yet

hijackthis I don't believe will actually stop it....it will just report what is running, then you post here and we tell you what to do?! Or am I missing something?!

i have deleated what hijackthis came up with
bar what i wanted to keep
it must have stopped it because i dont have popups anymore

..it sounded like you were saying hijackthis sorted it and I would've said that was unlikely...get what you mean now...glad it helped.
