I am being bombarded by Internet speed pop ups in IE. I am running XP. A spyware scan from AOL revealed nothing. Can anyone help please?

version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254 : Service Pack 2

XP Home Edition

Thank you for any help getting rid of this problem.

I downloaded the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program and it found over 100 problem files. I followed instructions and rebooted. All seems well for now, I have not gotten any more pop ups. My McAfee subscription has expired and I have relied on AOL (dangerous I know) to scan for things. Thank you for the forum and the advice I was able to search and find. Now can anyone recommend a free virus scan for an XP Home user that keeps AOL for the kiddos?

Thanks AGAIN!

superantispyware(free) and malwarebyte's are 2 of the best scanners

never duplicate resident protection, according to the aol page I just went to, their AV protection is McAfee

bottom line, don't add another

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
