    My Internet Explorer acts up when you open it. A numerous amout of pop ups comes onscreen until the computer freezes. Is it a virus? The server is down.

    sounds like you have several adware or spyware. go here and download these files and run them

    http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022-10122137.html?part=dl-spybot&subj=dl&tag=but

    then download this and put it in its own folder such as my documents/hjt
    then run it and save a log do NOT check anything or fix anything in this program then cut and paste a copy to this forum and let an expert look at it.
    hope this helps. i am not a pro. but have had a lot of pop up problems in the past.

    Welcome to TSG!! :)

    Make a folder on your hard drive, like My Documents\HJT
    Download Hijackthis.
    Unzip the file to the folder on your hard drive.

    Double click on Hijackthis.exe then click on the "Scan" button, then click on "Save Log".

    Copy and paste it back here and someone will be happy to review it.

    Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.
