    Help!
    I keep getting the dreadfull pop-up ads for everything from looking for a old classmate to you know what! Yes Insurance!
    Everytime I open up my Internet Explorer 6, I get between one to two pop-ups, then occasionally they pop-up while I'm here.
    I know filburt1 hates the p-ups just as much as we do, so they are not from here.
    I checked my msconfig files, my cookies, my startup file, and my browser plugins. nothing helps.
    I have also scanned my computer several times with housecall to check for viruses, backdoors etc. nothing.
    I am going NUTTS!
    Please help guys!

    I will give $10 Turtle Dollars to the person who finally gets rid of them, I am even willing to goto MSN Messenger and allow you access to my computer to help. ;-)

    Its probably the programs Kazaa installs. Do you have Kazaa?

    If you do, get rid of Kazaa and get Kazaa lite (http://www.kazaa-lite.tk)

    Kazaa is a POS by itself. Use Kazaa Lite if you must use it at all.

    After you uninstall Kazaa (which really doesn't, BTW), download and run Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/).

    It is all the extra programs that cause the pop-ups. Can't remember what they are called though. I had the same problem.

    But you have to find the names of the extra programs it installs in the add/remove program list to get rid of them.

    It is Kazaa - at least thats what happened on my PC. but from my experience, when you uninstall it (as [user]filburt1[/user] rightly says) it doesn't uninstall the extra programs.

    On a seperate note, does anyone know anything about "Viamixer"? It runs in the background on my Pc (with XP Home Sevice Pack 1).
