A pop-up blocking software is NO HELP for me when it comes to these ads because they just seem to over power a pop up blocker.These ads are also slowing me down while I surf. I am running fox-fire and still getting internet explorer ads. My 11 year old was the last to use my computer and that’s when I noticed this, I am not sure what he clicked on or did to get this on my pc but this is ignoring… HELP? THANKS!

    Popup blockers, such as the Yahoo and Google toolbars and IE’s built-in blocker, will only stop web based popup advertising. They can help somewhat but will do nothing to stop popups on a computer that is badly infected with trojan downloaders that are "phoning home" and contacting other computers to download and deliver the pop up ads. I believe that your computer is badly infected.

    Try a full cleaning and dis-infection routine, if you are getting excessive popups, or are getting popups even when you are offline.

    This is the one I use (it will take some time). These are on-line scans, you do not need to uninstall any of your current protections.

    1. Scan for virus, worms, dialers, etc. and remove (free online scan) with BitDefender

    2. Scan for trojans, adware and spyware and remove (free online scan) with Ewido (now AVG Anti-Spyware)

    It would have been a big help if you would have described the ads. It sounds like an infection. If you can identify the infection you may find a solution here.

    Both Google and Yahoo toolbars have a pop-up blocker. If you have both of these, you may eliminate quite a few of them but I still have some get through. I doubt there is any foolproof way to stop them. I use AVG free virus checker and I think that helps. Sorry. Most can be clicked off (X) before they load but it is annoying.

    Oh, and clear out your temporary internet file since they may be placing cookies there. Set your total file size fairly low, too.
