Okay, I seem to have gotten IE Defender onto my laptop and have tried the solution listed here, but it doesn't seem to work with Vista Home Premium.

I am the only account on my machine, so I should have administrative privileges, right? But when I try to delete, say pmspl.dll per the instructions, I am told I do not have permission to delete.

Also, the Panda Online scan does not support Vista.

I tried uninstalling via Control Panel and that doesn't seem to have done much, either.

Any suggestions on how I can get rid of this?

Vista compatible online scans:

Permissions are a funny thing - let the antivirus programs do the removal. If it doesn't, then you may have to remove it manually. If so, then you'll likely have to take ownership of the file so you can change the permissions. There's also some utilities out there that will let you delete a file when you reboot. I'll let some of the other members suggest them as I'm not real familiar with them (and I'm late for work! :huh:

Thank you for your assistance, I have managed to correct the problem! I was up until the wee hours, so I cannot remember exactly what I did, but the popups are gone.
