Hi.. I am new to this forum and hope it will help me understand how to clean my system up and prevent all this garbage from coming through... I am a retired accountant and have a 11 year old daugher at home who uses AIM quite a lot.. She also gets many popups.. I have tried several spybots and ad removal programs but somehow this crap still gets through. I am trying to sanitize my PC.

Thank you all

In addition to having the necessary applications on your hard drive, such as a resident firewall, an anti-virus, and assorted anti-spyware programs, teaching yourself, and most importantly, your daughter about internet security best practices (especially about opening attachments and downloading unknown applications of the fun/pretty/cute variety) will greatly help. Some of the BC Tutorials should be required reading for her.
