I've had some popup problems with outerinfo, so I downloaded and ran adaware.

Every time I try and scan my computer it (my computer) shuts down. I'm assuming that whatever gives me the popup problems is giving me the adaware problems but I don't know what to look for or how to find it.

Thank you Boop, I'm gonna go ahead and do all that stuff tomorrow. I have to get to school to have access to a printer. I'll let you guys know if this fixes it.
