i installed 'what's running?' to see what was throwing up these pop-ups all the time and it seems that its this program in my startup called 'pcshield' (i'd ignored it in the past because i'm stupid and just thought it was some random anti-virus program i'd carelessly downloaded from download.com). every 3 minutes or so i'll get a random number of pop-ups ranging from 2 to about 5. the ads come from http://ad.bannerconnect.net/iframe[whatever long number]
i googled it and came up with this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/PCShield-4003.html
i'm using xp, not sure which version. if i've missed anything i'm sorry, but i am mildly retarded.
thanks loads, andy
ps. here's my running processes just in case it isn't pcshield thats the problem:
(i know, myspace. well it's free image hosting..shut up)
