Hello and thank you ahead of time. I will gladly donate some money to whoever helps me solve this problem. :thumbsup:

I keep getting all sorts of unwanted pop-ups from something called starsdoor. I have gone to my pop-up blocker settings and removed " *.starsdoor " from my allowed sites list, but it somehow keeps adding itself back on and the pop-ups continue.

I saw some other forums about how to fix this problem, but each solution was different so I assume it's personalized for the certain files on someone's computer. I'm not quite sure how to show the files so I can be helped, so I guess in all reality I need to be helped in order to get help. Any one interested in helping this girl who knows next to nothing about this kind of stuff? :flowers:

I am using WindowsXP...it's a dell...I don't know much more :-/

Install Super Antispyware Free. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
