    Hope I am on the correct forum.The kid just called from college with a problem.Says she downloaded adaware and now has nothing but popups.Hard to believe because I have used it in the past.I now use AddSubtract and Spybot.I told her to uninstall it and download Spybot S&D and to check the web for a pop up stopper.Anyone have any recommendations on a good one? I do believe they have a firewall that is on from their service provider.It is the college internet(cable)

    I would be sure that if you download ad-aware, spybot & cwshredder - updating first 2 then running them all, your pop-up problems should be clear. I have followed this procedure on a few hundred computers and stopped all popups. Seems something is being missed.
