How come I still havr trouble with pop-ups and viruses??
Sorry to hear you're having issues with viruses and pop-ups. What kind of anti-virus software are you using? If you don't have it already, we offer Shaw Secure for free for our internet subscribers. You can get more information about it here: McAfee Internet Security overview
I seem to be in error, I can't seem to get secure in. Yes I have McFee and shouldn't he keep me out of trouble??
When is the last time you ran a virus scan? If you're not sure how to do it, you can find the instructions here: McAfee Internet Security - How to run a virus scan
There are "viruses" and there are "potentially unwanted programs" ('PUP').
Anti-virus software will detect the any "virus", but only some of them detect those 'PUP'.
Within Microsoft Internet Explorer, you should see the 'File / Edit / View / Favorites / Tools / Help' toolbar.
Click 'Manage add-ons'.
Look at 'Toolbars and Extensions'.
Check the "Publisher" column for names that are not familiar to you.
Click on one of them, and click 'Disable'.
Repeat for another other names.
Restart IE, and see if the pop-up windows still occur.
If still necessary, look at the free 'Ad-aware' software: www.lavasoft.com
Download/install/run it, to check for 'PUP'.
Also, within 'Control Panel', look at the list of "Installed Programs".
Click the column-heading to "sort-by-date-installed",
and look for newly-installed programs. Anything you don't recognize?
