    I am periodically getting web advertisements popping up on my screen, and I'm not even connected to the internet at the time. I think my computer has gone crazy. Any suggestions why this might be happening and what I can do to delete or stop this problem?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Sounds like you have some sort of spy-ware on your system.

    Go over to http://www.lsfileserv.com/index.html and download adaware, install it and run it.

    There are several different programs that download advertisements to your computer.
