Make sure there's up to date Anti-virus, run adaware or spyware - or even both.

That should do it, if not let us know.

You can go to http://www.download.com and download adaware, I think its version 6.0 for free. Make sure you update it first, and its a great free tool. The manufacturer is lavasoft.

I doubt this has anything to do with your router. These are pop-up windows right?

You can also get google's toolbar, also a nice free pop-up blocker and search tool. http://www.toolbar.google.com

I run Adaware, Spybot (a lot of porn sites stick spyware on your comp) and Norton antivirus. The only one that costs is norton. With these three programs running, and keeping them updated, I manage to keep my system clean.

I can fix it for you really easy. go to http://www.mozilla.org and download mozilla. lol. ie sucks when it comes to handling pop-ups and spam. I always use mozilla when looking at porn....it lets the windows i want to open, open, and it doesnt let any that arent requested. no keyboard work involved. and it notifies you before it will download anything unwanted like adware.

Ermm.. Truce, I think the point was that he didn't want the porn, not that he was specifically looking for porn and getting lots of random popups.

McAfee gets all adware/spyware off my comp pretty well. And maybe a pop-up ad blocker like Google Toolbar would come in handy.

I'd look into having your ActiveX plugins on prompt (though some of mine are disabled). Lots of crap comes through that way. Check your "Downloaded Program Files" folder in your Windows directory to see if there's anything you don't recognize. Also might wanna look into any other apps you're running.

Ya probably have quite a bit of spyware installed.

The most important thing is dont download 'free software' If you do then when it asks you to click yes with a big message, be afraid be very afraid. :evil:

Always read the message. They usually hide them in there with the install sometimes making you think it is the part of it.
