I had a pop up from First ad solution and also had one from 0pc and several others...I used the hijackthis that I had found in your forum and bingo...they are all gone..:tazz:...the problem I have now...my connection is slower than it was before..I am on dial up and if I connect with the desk top ( the one that had the Popups)...its really slow.. I can connect with a lap top and have no issues at all...I connect with normal speed as I was prior to removal of the popups, even use the same phone line...have any suggestions?...TY
