Probably also connected to this, my internet is routinely interrupted and I get the message "Server busy, do you want to retry or switch" (or something like that -- I'm sorry, I don't know what it is exactly).
I've already gone through my Add/Delete programs and can't find anything that looks out of the ordinary... although I don't know if I'd actually be able to identify something that wasn't supposed to be there.
I'm assuming this whole thing started when I updated to IE7 -- I honestly had never had a single popup before, but as soon as the installation completed I had so many popups I couldn't leave my computer alone for a second without it being flooded. I uninstalled that and reinstalled the older version, and while the frequency of the popups decreased they're still there. Plus, it started doing this extremely irritating thing where fifty windows open at the same time. I was told by a friend to switch to Firefox, but when I did that I started getting popups from both that and IE at the same time.
Please, someone tell me there's an easy point-and-click way to fix this?
Edit: Oh, sorry -- I'm using Windows XP, Internet Explorer... 6.2?, and my computer is a Dell Dimension 2400.
