  2. Blankyou need to enable
    the option called
    "pop up blocker"

    if your internet browser
    isn't the kind that has a
    built in pop up blocker
    then you should get one.

    Hi,
    Both IE7 and IE6 (XP SP2) have a pop-up blocker which works well.

    It sounds like you're seeing more than the occasional pop-up and you may
    have malware installed.

    Hi,
    You should install (at least) XP SP2 for the enhanced security. But... you
    should clean up the computer *before* installing XP SP2 (and possibly IE7)
    It sounds like you're not seeing just the usual website pop-ups, but are
    infected with malware.

    Work through the steps at The Parasite Fight
    http://www.aumha.org/a/quickfix.htm including Windows Defender
    http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx and
    the posting of a HijackThis log.
