Windows Defender can't catch everything. No program can. Anyway you could try Spybot Search & Destroy, very good at removing annoying adware problems. You should also clear your cookies and cache. Anyway why are you using IE? its slow and has many security holes. Thats why it is targeted by pop-ups like yours.

What specifically do these pop-ups say? The answer will help us direct you to the proper guide, programs, or directions for disinfecting your computer.

i click cancel and every time i try to click back on IE or open a new page it keeps popping up.


When you get such pop-ups, don't click on anything. Instead, use the task manager to close those windows.

Tomo2: Firefox can also get redirected or beseiged by pop-ups. It all depends on the security settings and browsing habits. When I use Firefox at the University without first changing the security settings under tools, I always get at least some pop-ups. That said, I myself prefer Firefox because it is a LOT easier to handle and configure so it's secure.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
