At the moment I am plagued by CdI Pop ups and am trying to do something about it via the BC Security Forum. What has amazed me is the number of anti spyware downloads there are available and all saying they can kill everything. What is really needed is someway to hit back at the advertisers in the pop ups. Surely some of the reputable names like Asda, AOL, Barclays etc must know the frustration they are indirectly causing. If enough people complained it might strike them that it could be having a negative effect. Without sponsors all these pop ups would disappear but then how would all the anti spyware merchants make a living. Hmmm!

I also don't like the word 'actually'. Just count the number of times you hear an expert say it

Sorry to hear about all of your problems.

I actually agree that pop ups are a pain.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Have you tried using the Bitdefender and Superantispyware scans available from this list?
