Hello I am new this forums and thought this is the right place to come for help.
I am getting random popups and ads such as poker ads, dating online, search engines, etc when I browse the internet, however the popups do not open in a new window, it directs me automatically in the window I am browsing on.
I also have noticed there is 2 iexplore.exe in the taskmanager when not connected to the internet and unable to end the process.
I have tried Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Virus scan, SUPERAntiSpyware, and none of them solved the problem. Please help.
Operating Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit

I have solved the problem.
It appeared to be Messenger Plus that was causing the popups and it went away after I uninstalled it (So far).
