Hi,

I hope this is going to an easy one but everytime I try to go to a local hospital website, aurora.org and search jobs, about 100 popups from the same site will popup. It just goes crazy. I can't close them fast enough. I don't think it's my computer because I tried to go there on my husbands laptop and it did the same thing. When I hit Ctl-Alt-Delete, it's loaded with the open windows and then there is also an error message that says "This program cannot be closed. If it is being debugged, please resume it or close the debugger first." I don't even know what a debugger is....lol. I am using Win2000 and my husband has Win XP.

Any suggestions on how to get this to stop going nuts when I go there?

Thanks
Shari

Shari,


Try some sort of "pop-up" blocker. Tried "google" for "pop-up blockers". There are tons of "free" ones out there.

Hope that helps !!!

I have a popup blocker that works wonderful for the most part but I think it's something with either the website or something is interferring with a debugger since that's the error message I get. I mean, you get a popup here and there and you can close it but this popup is literally 3 pages of the same site in seconds. The bar where it shows the open windows puts in a up/down arrow and it's 3 clicks to the bottom.

Thanks
Shari

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I use Google Toolbar for a popup blocker, and combined with the built-in popup blocker that came bundled with XP Service Pack 2, I rarely get popups at all.

Yup, it's spyware/adware. Nasty too. :eek: If you go to the website and even search, nothing happens.

After the Spyware/Adware is removed, you may want to have a permanent Sypware/Adware solution such as [URL="http://www.safer-networking.org/"]Sypbot S&D[/URL] or Ad-Aware SE Personal. Scan your computer weekly, make sure you go on trusted sites, and that should do it. :)
