Evening all,
I appear to have a bit of a problem with adware; every time I open a new window in IE (v6.0.2900.2180) I get about 3 pop ups advertising various things (gambling sites seem to be big at the minute, although I have little doubt porn will come into play at some point)

I've got the lastest AVG update, and I'm running windows firewall, but nothing specific; not really sure how I could have been infected, but ah well.

Anyway, any ideas on getting rid of it are appreciated!

Cheers

Hi and welcome.

I see by your post count you are likely new here so I would point out there is a forum dedicated exclusively to solving mal-ware problems complete with some stickied topics you should likely check out.

Good luck to you.
