I cleared my cookies. My Norton Anti-virus is up-to-date and says everything is OK. But, I keem getting a pop-up which is a Google search for the words "george bush idiot". My trask manager shows this program is running, but I cannot find it anywhere in my programs.

I have attached a picture of the pop-up.

What's going on?

Spybot will get that out of your PC.

My first suggestion would be to quit using such a buggy, featureless, security-hole-ridden browser and begin using a browser that will not invite such problems onto your PC. (http://www.mozilla.org/)

Both Mozilla Suite and Firefox have built-in popup suppression, along with several dozen other features, that make either one a far better choice than Internet Exploder.

There is A NIGHT AND DAY difference for the better.;)

I run XP Pro with SP2.

SP2 has a buitl in pop up blocker now.

I've been running IE with SP2 and have had zero problems with it.

I run AdAware and SpyBot and I'm clean.

Go to Microsoft.com and install their spyware utility. It's far superior to the others...including the utility that I've sworn by for a while.

Or the most security-depraved OS.

funny how they always say..quit using such a buggy and unsafe browser. I have never used anything but IE and have never had a single problem. I did actually try firefox and others and they just suck. They look like netscape to me.

Okay, to take this thread out of the "My Kung Fu is better than your Kung Fu" nonsense...

As already suggested, I would try Spy Bot Search and Destroy, it is free, and has worked very well for me.

Spy Bot home page (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html)

Keep it updated and run it every once and a while (I run mine weekly).

If you don't have SP2, I would consider getting that AFTER you have cleaned your computer using SBSD... Also, I believe, there is a service pack out for Explorer as well that helps with popup management. SP2 even comes with a firewall that I immediately turned off, but some people like it. I haven't had a chance to play with it much.

Either way, I am confident that Spy Bot will at least help.

Good Luck!

Installed it last night. So far, so good.

Thanks for all the answers, even the ones I didn't understand.

Spybot along with Ad-Aware SE will keep you safe. I think all the guys boycotting IE were saying is that Firefox will help you decrease all those "findings" from Spybot & Ad-Aware.

I ran IE for many years and never had a problem either, but with Firefox, less stuff does get through IMOP.

no, IE doesn't (unless you are running XP and SP2).

try running spywareguard and spyware blaster. I have never run anything but IE and I never have any hits on my spyware scans.

Quit computing altogether, it's not worth it. Our forefathers didn't have computers and elected better presidents. I blame Microsoft.

Run regedit and start deleting registry keys until the problem goes away. Shouldn't take too long. ;)
