    I have cable, so I'm always connected to the Internet. So, every once in a while, I get message pop-ups. They aren't all porn related. They say "This message is to [and my ip address]. And then it advertises random web sites" I have done a virus scan, and I have no viruses. What do I do to stop these annoying messages?????

    you could get a popupstopper but the best thing is to scan your pc for add/spyware.

    download this free program,click the "online"button and update it,then scan and let it delete everything it finds in red.
    good luck;)
