Well after upping my membership to Gold and scanning through the uncensored section , I now have porn pop ups when ever I turn on my computer
Cleared history and temp internet files...no help.

No problem here or at home...

Download a progmam called "Ad-aware"

It helps get rid of the nested codes on your machine which leads to pop-ups.

No probs here, but I don't visit that section either...... I use Pop Up Stopper and it works for me. Wardey

spybot seems to be the best out there

it will find stuff you NEVER knew was on your computer (stuff installed by other programs that you actually wanted to run)

get the one with the installer

Default Startup List

If you are using MS Windows...

Click on Start and then Run.

Type in: MSCONFIG

Click on the Startup tab.

Go to the bottom and look for anything suspicious.

Uncheck the box of the suspicious program and click OK.

Reboot your computer and see if you still get the Popups.

Clay,
Sounds good I'll give it a try. It shows up in the address block up to as arnachyporn.com
It seems to have something to do with start up , since once its up and appears and I delete it its usually gone , only to reappear after start up again


I suspect I got it off of another link I clicked on , on uncensored
Thanks
Cal (mopower)
