I have Windows ME and Internet 6.0. Every time my computer is connected to the internet I get dozens of pop-ups within minutes and they jam up my computer and end up getting flagged as viruses and at-risk files when I run SpyBot or AdAware. Is there a way to disable pop-ups in general and to stop the ads from coming? I have my security setting set as conservatively as I can and it doesn't seem to be helping. Thanks!

You are probably infected with a virus, spyware or both. Do you have a anti virus? If not I recommend AVG Free Edition. That is what I use and find it works very well. There is also Avast Home Edition which is also free for personal use.

If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe mode (Getting to safe-mode) Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip remember to extract the contents of the zip file into the same folder as Sysclean.com


DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner this command will scan all of your hdd's SAV32CLI.EXE -F -di -remove -dn -mbr -all -zip -p=avscanlog.txt and give you a log file to review afterwards.

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix
