    Has anyone heard of a company called ad pepper media?

    every time i open up IE i get some spam operated by this site. link to company - http://www.adpepper.com/en/

    I dont know how i managed to install it, or which software it came with. I've scanned my system with adaware and have my firewall settings at maximum, but still get this crap each time i start IE.

    There are no active X controls or browser plugins it operates from, thats way i'm puzzled.

    Any ideas?

    The HOSTS file is your friend.

    Just enter the url.
    I know it at least has this entry.
    Code:
    adpepper.dk
    I'm currently working on a more comprehensive version, but it'll block that kind of crap, and lots of it.

    Its the e-mail spam thats driving me nut&#39;s . I&#39;m using Mozilla, pop ups don&#39;t seem as bad when browsing really.

    Edit My wife likes IE so we have both installed.
