    I have been getting a terrible amount of pop-ups from this forum when using FireFox. I wouldnt think that the admins here would resort to that, but my PC is clear of Spyware and Adware.

    There are no popups anywhere on this site, nor will there ever be any...it was about a year ago that even small text ads were added. You must have spyware somewhere on your system that your antispyware tool can't detect.

    Chris, no one program captures everything.........so make sure you run more than one anti-virus.
    I use a mix of Norton, Spy-Bot, Spy Sweeper and Ad-Aware and it does a good job.
    Good luck, I know those can be annoying....
