Any suggestions on how to stop the pop up ads?
As soon as I start up my computer they come popping up 8-10 of them at a time.
They have frozen me out, have to restart, its sooo irritating!
Anyone else experiencing lately being bombarded more than usual?
I tried calling my internet service, but they just recommend to buy software, which I don't want, afford to do.
I have DSL so I get them even when I'm not surfing but on another hardware program.
So if any smart computer people out there, I'd appreciate a suggestion.

Also there can be a problem with "spyware" - It is even included with legitimate software which you purchase - A great little proggie I have found is called Adaware - It clears them up - You can dl a trial version and check it out for free - It is available for almost all windows os - Ad Aware
While we are on this subject, There is another handy little proggie I found a long time ago that I love called Windows Washer - I swear by this one! When you delete something from your puter it doesn't really get deleted, but rather just sits on your HD untill it gets overwritten sometime at later date - Windows Washer overwrites those files and gets rid of them! Plus, with one touch of a button it cleans out your cache, your history, and more - You will find it clears up a bunch of space on your HD and will probably even speed up your puter! Again a trial version is available for dl so you can check it out -
I liked both of these so much I bought them before the trial period was over even! I run them about once a week as well as defrag the puter
