Hello Everyone. I recently been getting pop ups on internet explorer and mozilla. Usually in windows explorer its 40 pop ups at once. I did a virus check and found nothing and scanned with ad aware and found nothing. Is there anything else I can use to stop this from happening? Thanks For all your help.
