unwanted sites popping up

Running vista buisness and unwanted sites keep popping up when I am online.Looks like the kids have been to games sites. I have spybot and ccleaner , but the problem persists. Is there any other way to stop unwanted sites doing this, or cleaning up the machine so it doesnt happen.

There maybe some gremelins in ur system still. I think the 1st idea is to password protect that pc for your pc's safety & all ur documents!

Download this software >> click here and double click the .exe file & remove all the items in red after you have completed the scan.

Another good idea is to run Malwarebytes >>click here

When scanning with Malwarebytes be sure to do a full scan & to run in either safe more or drop the internet connection.

Best of luck !

Thanks Timbo tried both these, but the problem persists. Malware took 2 hrs and found 11 problems, but to no avail. STILL the rogue sites pop up.
