Sorry I just noticed I've been writing EI instead of IE. Ooops. Well I have some of the info you asked about.
Here's where I stand now. Still every time I launch FF from a reboot I get a IE pop-up window w/ adds. I close that window down & I get more pop-ups. I got some pix for you. I couldn't capture the whole window so I got a few pix from the window.
I can send you the actual address from the pop-up if you want to see it. I didn't add it here, in fear its a virus or something. This time when I opened It went to Bonus.com:Bonus.com

Inside the window were these 2 cells:
10 ringtones pichttp://img181.imageshack.us/my.php?image=back1xu7.gifhttp://img181.imageshack.us/my.php?image=legobioniclebarraki0772hg0.jpg
I close that window just to have another open. It says the following:Attention: MyWay would like to give you 10 Complimentary Ringtones as a free gift. Enter your cellphone number to continue. You will be redirected
back to myway.com as soon as you are done.
then I get 2 windows that pop up asking if I'm sure I want to cancel & not get the ringtones. Then this page opens up.
After that window I get this 1.Internet Explorer-security warning Do you want to install this software
Publisher: WinSoftware Corporation2 buttons -Install - Don't install
I did neither & hit the X to close it.
That brought me to this page: I have the addy if you want it. Its for winantispyware2007.
Its the home page for the product. That leads to another window that starts with:NOTICE: You have not completed the scan.
Then a bunch of reasons why I should scan now.
Then another WinAntiSpyware2007 window pops up saying its going to start the scan. I close it.
Finally after 6 or more pop-up windows I finally can close IE.
I've run AVG-Antispyware, S&D, Ad-aware SE, AVG-AV & re-booted at least 10 times. But I still have the problem. I know this is a lot of stuff I hope it will help.
**PS- I was thinking, what if i did a system restore to an earlier point when this wasn't happening? Would that work? When doing as system restore, to say last week what changes are being made. Will I lose all the work-emails I've done since then? Will all the viruses & malware I've deleted come back? Again sorry for the length.
Edited to fix links. ~tg
