Well, ad-aware from www.lavasoft.de will get rid of any spyware you've got on your computer.

I've gotten those popups too. They don't necessarily mean you actually have spyware on your computer, it's just what the popup ad says in order to get you to buy their stuff.

When you visit a website, it will automatically install spyware onto your computer. Not all websites do it, just some.
 
Yes, have you ever gone to a website and they asked you to download something? NEVER NEVER NEVER click yes, thats a big was to get huge amounts of spyware.


EDIT: mudvaynefan do a search next time there has been about a bajillion threads about this.

sorry about that, i was afraid if i searched for it and i found something, that it would just ad more spyware, so i came here to see what a legitamite(sp?) program was, will search next time.

Websites that carry pornographic material, or websites for casinos.

Yay, my teachers will be proud. I used "pornographic material" in a sentence!

To hell with AdWare. Get Spybot S&D. It's saved my sorry *** a couple of times, and it gets stuff that AdWare doesn't, plus it's completely free.

Oh, and some of the ads on this board try to put tracking cookies on your computer. Nothing that will cause pop-ups, but still stuff none the less.
