Pop Up Ads Have Taken Over Ie
Posted 16 May 2008 - 02:29 PM
Within 10 to 20 seconds of opening IE, I start to get ad pop ups. A real pain in the neck. I have pop up blocker on but to no avail. This started after I downloaded a song from Lime Wire and when I tried to play it a window came up saying I needed a CODEC for this. When I said OK (big mistake obviously) it started to download something. I tried to stop it but was unsuccessful. Initially it also took over IE and changed my home page. I purchased AVG and HiJack this and ran them. They were able fix the home page issue but I still get the ad pop ups as soon as I start to use IE. Any help fixing this would be appreciated.
