I, like most i know, use firefox as my default browser instead of IE but all the same i did upgrade my IE to 7 because i do use it for my hotmail when i click the envolope on msn.
The other day i scanned for ads with ad aware s/e, a program ive used for years.
after i re booted i kept getting IE popping up with adverts for bookies and all sorts of ads, nothing like porn or anything but it's annoying all the same, it's things like i've no idea how it started, i'm thinking it's some sort of spyware but i scanned my p.c at seperate times with several spyware removers, any ideas on how i can stop IE doing this??

ps: I do have a pop up blocker before anyone asks lol

Hi watty147,

Completely follow the instuctions in this link.

If, after Step Four, you are still experiencing the popups, continue on with Step Five (Post a HJT log in the Malware Forum) and an expert will help you.
