My PC has a pop-up problem with adverts for Sudoku etc and porn sites, these are irritating but not a major problem.

The major concern is one pop up in particular, a SpyWare Sweeper advert takes over my Explorer window to search for files!

A window appears with 'OK' and 'CANCEL' to the sweeper question but which-ever I click I get transferred to the sweeper website for a search! :thumbsup: It's ruining work and my time on the internet.

I would be very grateful for any help
