For some reason, Internet Explorer doesn't work on my computer. I don't have a problem with that, I don't use it, however, I keep getting a pop-up message, saying, "Internet Explorer cannot download gettime.php from setup.bestmanage.org."
Then the pop-up goes on to say, "Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

Now, here's my problem...this pop-up occurs every 30-45 seconds, non-stop. even if i don't click on "OK" to close the window then, another one pops up. I went to work the other day and when i came home, there were 300 of these messages waiting for me on my computer. What can I do to stop this annoyance?

I'm running Window XP Pro with Firefox as my main browser.
