Never heard of it, but when I do a search its supposed to be the latest and greatest search engine to rival Google. Hmmm.....
Either you've unknowingly installed some kind of Accoona "helper" - in which case see 'Add/Remove Programs' and uninstall it, OR you are suffering a really bad case of pop-ups, OR you have some spyware in your system.
You may be able to block the pop-ups by doing this:
Access your pop-up blocking settings through Start>Control Panel>Internet Options
Click on the Privacy tab.
At the bottom of the window is Pop-up Blocker with a tick box to block all pop-ups.
To add a site where pop-ups are allowed click the Settings button.
Type in the web address of the site that you want to permit pop-ups for and click Add.
Ok out of Internet Properties.
To scan for spyware do this:
Update your Anti-virus software online.
Do you have any anti-spyware
installed? If not download and update all
of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode
and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
See if that helps then come back to us with some info about your system and what you're running.
