For the past 3 weeks I have been receiving a tremendous amout of pop up ads. I never used to get them.

I have run Adaware, Spybot and Zone alarm is continuously working and still they get through.

What can I do!:confused:

When you are online ?
Try a pop-up stopper or a browser Like Mozilla 1.2.1 or Opera 6.05 that has a pop-up stopper build in.
If it is something in your PC, Spybot is the tool...

Hi zachl

As already pointed out if these are legitamate java pop-ups there is not much you can do except use a popup stopper - if there is anything malicious on your computer causing this then posting your startup might help us to spot something

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.5 :-

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/startuplist15.zip

Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

Hi zachl

Nothing jumps out from your startup list

Go to your c\windows\downloaded program files folder and delete "h**p://www106.coolsavings.com/download/cscmv5X.cab"

You have far to many programs running at startup - go to msconfig and untick any you do not need - this list will help you decide which ones

Thanks for the help. Coolsavings.com I noticed after I ran the report and deleted it.

That list is a great resource. Thanks for sharing it!

I guess I'll have to get pop up blocking software.
