Well, I found this web site, while looking to remove pop ups, I didnt register and found some one had the same problems, i followed the advice, and it stopped, I also downloaded recommended problems like, super anti spyware, comodo firewall and spy ware blaster, I even have ad aware.

Now while searching On a forum I receive non-sponsored banners, in places where sponsors are supposed to be, I contacted the admin, and he said, I am NOT supposed to see these.

I run ad aware and it says I have no critical errors, but I have lots of privacy's all COOKIES, Ill click to delete all 119(is that alot?) of them, and ill run the ad aware again and they will be back.

What do I do?

If you can help me fix this, I have my old computer ill hook up, and see if you can help me fix it, too.

Thanks so much.

PS im not receiving any performance loss, and I receive NO pop ups, or ad's while I use mozillia firefox. Its just the principle of not wanting this on my PC. :thumbsup:

If you want to block the adware/tracking cookies aka "Third party cookies" from installing on your computer in IE, follow the directions in the link below for blocking third party cookies. I know of no site that requires third party cookies to function.

You can also block the same third party cookies in Firefox2. See info in link below.

Yes, after blocking cookies from loading, you remove the ones you have and they should not install again.
You should get NoScript extension for Firefox if you don't have it. It protects you from driveby downloads of malware plus keeps a lot of ads from loading.
Adblock is also a good extension for Firefox.
