    Ok, I have been having this odd problem, Even with my pop up blocker, I have been still getting pop ups lately, and on top of that.. I noticed that some words are now underlined in green, and when you click them they bring you to some www.search(Forgot rest), AND when I use a google search or something, the first listed pages are just ads, such as "Search for <Blahblah> with Search2020!" or something

    I got help from someone.. downloaded the thing they said to (CWShredder?) and it fixed the problem, but.. it keeps coming back!, no matter what, every time I use the internet after computer has been shut off (Or possibly if my bro uses it) it does this again..

    You've got a program on that computer that keeps bringing the *ware back. Have you ran Adaware or Spybot S&D? I had a machine doing the same thing, and after updating and scanning a couple of times with the above, it fixed it. Let us know! (y)
