I'm getting Drivercleaner, WinAntivirus Pro, and other miscellaneous popups nonstop. I've run Ad-Aware and Spybot several times and can't seem to get rid of whatever is causing the problem. I use Firefox, but the popups are coming up on IE. Can someone help me please???

If you continue to have problems after using Rogue Remover, see BC's self-help tutorial "How to remove DriveCleaner 2006".
