Pop Ups

So does anyone else here get pop ups on the main index of the forums? I've had some spyware I'm having problems removing and I can't tell if the pop ups are just from this site or are because of spyware.

It's spyware.

If you're using a spyware removal tool other than Ad-Aware or Spybot, you've probably just installed more spyware, or paid money for a product that is inferior than the free alternatives.

Go to: http://www.lavasoftusa.com and install AdAware, then scan your system and remove anything it finds.

That's what I use. I scan for it, remove it, and then it still pops up. It's really annoying.

Restart in safe mode and scan. That way, everything can be removed even the ones in the memory

you must use (first off, use firefox the web browser)
Ad Aware, Spybot, and Spyware Blaster all together for best results...
