    Hey all

    Recently I started getting popups on my desktop while not logged on to the internet. These would come every few minutes and in literally SWARMS. I have Spybot S&D, but even after running it several times the popups are still coming. Any computer saavy people here know how to fix this problem?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yeah, I used to use Adaware, but I got rid of it after I got Spybot S&D, which seems to be more powerful than Adaware. But I'll give it a try.

    Thank you
