I do not use FF but I beleive it has a pop up blocker in it which someone will tell you how to activate; when and with what programs did you last thoroughly scan your computer for possible infections?

shutting OFF the pop ups is one thing but does not treat the cause OF them :thumbsup:

HomeChoice.net forwarded to the Homechoice and Tiscali home page. If you have internet through this company it probably "Phoning home". Meaning it is normal traffic.
