Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my post!! :tazz:

Let me start by saying I have read other such posts and tried to follow the steps there, but they don't seem to work for me. I guess it's pretty user specific. I've been trying to fix these issues myself, but over the past couple months they have just been getting worse and worse. It started with a popup program that I can't get rid of, listed as "The Best Offers" in my add/remove programs list. Trying to uninstall has proved fruitless. For a time, the majority of the popups I was getting were from that program, but recently, MSIE has been the major issue. I recieve 10-20 popups at a time, every few minutes. Even Firefox is infected with popups now. It's a challenge just to browse your awesome forums. Within the past few days, I have been getting constant popups warning about the Blackworm virus. I am hesitant to click on any of them, even the ones that claim to be genuine Windows warnings, in fear of them being false links to yet more crap I don't want.

This is getting to be a serious hinderance; my programs are being crashed or minimized while I'm in the middle of doing something, and I can't stand it anymore! I'm living at home and have no money to buy popup blocker programs or spyware removal kits. I don't know what to do! Please, help me!
