It depends what's causing them.

Do you have a firewall and is it operating?

What do the windows look like? Do they look like windows messenger windows with just writing or do they have pictures like a small web page?

If it has what looks like IE spawning popups you are infected with malware - adware.

Do you have any anti-spyware programs like Adaware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Microsoft anti-spyware?

If not, download, install them, update and run the following anti-malware programs in SAFE MODE.


*AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

*the two most important to have!

Microsoft Antispyware Beta: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx

Set them to fix what they find.

After running all three, run the following web based scans using Internet Explorer:

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner
http://www.kaspersky.com/service?chapter=161739400#betatest


Panda Activescan (IE only)
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/co...n_principal.htm

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:
http://housecall-beta.trendmicro.com/en/st...orp.asp?id=scan

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx.

Windows Security Trojanscan

Let us know the results.
