    At first I thought it was a program, but then when I close all my programs, including my internet, I still get pop-ups. I don't know why, it just happens. If I leave my computer for about 20 minutes, my computer will literally be full of pop ups.

    I'm running a Windows 2000, cox cable modem. Please help, thanks!

    Get free Ad-aware 6 from http://www.lavasoft.de update, after it's installed, and run it.

    Be sure you have a firewall enabled if you don't already have one running. There are two excellent free ones available. The best one is Sygate in my opinion from http://www.sygate.com.

    Please do this:

    Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

    NOTE: A small help file for HijackThis is located at http://tomcoyote.org/hjt
