What anti-virus software have you got?

If it comes to the worst - you may have to reinstall windows :hmm:

Try getting ad-aware and Spybot search and destroy. I think you can get these for free over the internet but they work pretty well. Had them on my previous computer.

Alternatively download the Google toolbar.... It blocks popups

I fully agree with the first part of your suggestion. But as far as Google toolbar installation is concerned...well you can also change your security settings to disable pop-ups, the thing is - if you got a virus it has to be eliminated rather than localized. Therefore, rather than "block it" -it is best to run anti-virus software and if the problem remains - reinstall windows.

True.

But Tony's post sounds like adware problems which Google toolbar would stop those pop ups.

Tony If you do have a virus see your doctor :lol: May I suggest you download AVG Free which is a good program as well!

IMHO ClamWin is a better AV than AVG - at least, it picked up something on my PC that AVG hadn't..

Hi All,

I had the same virus but downloaded spyhunter which is working but the virus keeps on coming back albeit in a poor form but Spyhunter knocks it out but the warning is that it imbeds and boomerangs back anything from 4 - 49 times before its exhausts itself.

Kindest Regards
