Recently I've been getting pop-ups, even when I'm not doing anything, except sitting at the desktop. Now, it's become irritating, as to when I am playing fullscreen games, it interupts the game to bring up a pop-up. I'd rather not have my computer being a billboard for some computer speed up program . It happens especially when I bring up my homepage (Google, which never has ads) from a new browser window in Internet Explorer. I've used both Spybot and Ad-aware, updated their reference files, and done a deep scan and delete of spyware on my computer. My computer is spyware free from what both programs say. How can I stop these pop-ups from infiltrating my system? I'd rather not use a pop-up killer, but actually kill the problem so I don't have anything eatting away at my memory. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help .
( Sorry if this is misplaced, I wasn't exactly sure where to put it. )
