I rec'd a warning message at some point that somehow my pop-up blocker file got deleted. Possibly when I got with a spylocked infection which is now removed. My windows toolbar pop-up blocker is on but has stayed at the same # blocked for months which leads me to believe that maybe the setting is on but blocking ability is gone and blocker file is indeed wiped out. What is the filename for the pop-up blocker file in Windows XPand how would I get it back onto my computer in the appropriate location?
Thx

I think if you go to the Add/Remove program and highlight IE7, click on it and choose repair it might solve the problem.

If that doesn't do the trick, you can uninstall IE7, then reinstall.

Are you sure you are malware free?

I don't know how you removed "spylocked". If for instance all you did was run the Smitfraudfix tool, you are likely still infected with other malware. Two very good programs to scan and remove any leftovers or other malware for free are in the links below.
Install Super Antispyware. 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.
