2 possible things.
Download adaware and run it, it's a free software.
Or 2nd option, are you using windows xp? if so, disactivate the allow messages option.

go to www.tucows.com and type in popup killer in the search, there are a number of different ones to try there.
good luck

True, but if it's her ip address that is published on the net, none of these pop up busters will work. A little bug with windows xp.

you can try using adaware, it's a free software that will take off the spyware on your computer.
Your other option is to disactivate the message service from windows, note this does not affect msn messenger.
go to control pannel, then to system tools, or service tools, not sure what it is in english, then you go to services. You disactivate the mesage service, 4th one on my list but this version of windows is in french.
Disactivate it and you shouln't get anymore pop ups.

the only downfall I see to pop up blockers, is that if you do go on some webcites where you need to get the pop ups in order to continue on the webcite, you will not be able to (mainly warez cites where you need to click on a popup to get access).

You've got some kind of spyware, I would listen to the rest and download AdAware first and run that, then use a good pop-up killer for regular old annoying pop-ups.

I also use PanicWare's Popup Stopper Pro. It's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Do you use Kazaa or anything of that sort?
