    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.
