Forabout a week, a window pops up while i am online (aol) or offline and the title bar just says
"duf". Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Popups are usually caused by malware.

What anti-virus program do you have and has it been updated daily?
When was the last AV scan you have run with it?

In addition to the resident AV program, you should have several anti-spyware/anti/malware programs and use them often.

The following freeware aps will detect and remove spyware/malware from your computer and in addition to your resident anti-virus program you should have several (if not all) of these installed (and used frequently - each may detect things that the others may not -always update them before you run them and run them from safe mode when applicable.


Download, install and update the following, then run them in safe mode:

Anti-malware freeware (You can run as many of these as you wish. Generally there is no conflict between these and you should always run several)

AdAware SE:
