Default Pop up ads

I cant surf the web any more. It is even a hassle to look at OSO. All I get is pop up after pop up. It is bogging down my computer so bad I am thinking about just wiping it out and reloading everything again.

I constantly run virus scans, Ad-aware, clean out my cookies and temp files everything I can think of.

when I get finished cleaning everything out and running these programs I still get pop ups.

I noticed there is a OSO sponsor selling a pop up eliminator. as a last resort I was thinking of paying for there program, but be for I do I wanted to see if anyone else has used it.

What should I do????????????

Google has a pop up eliminator that works really well. Adds a toolbar to explorer.

Check it out here: http://toolbar.google.com/

Highly recommended!

Well I just cleaned out my computer and ran all three of the programs recommended and it worked. I don't know what one worked the best. all I care about is that it worked.

Thanks

DONT load that **** on your PC. The only reason it is FREE is because they track your activity and then solicit you with what they think you will buy.

I'm with Tantrum on that one. I loaded it and deleted it within the same hour. Very similar to WeatherBug...cool program, but why do you think it's free??
