    Firefox would probably stop those popups. Its another web browser, and its much safer than Internet Explorer.

    Also just wondering do you have any type of pop-up blocker or what? If not I suggest getting one NOW! or else things like this just keep on happening

    k, i got a pop up blocker and Ive already been using firefox. I found out that i can stop them by going to the task manager and closing the process "iExplorer"

    Yes that maybe but I dont think you will really want to keep closing iexplorer all the time. Hopefully those popups wont happen anymore. If they do just post back and I'll give you some more advice

    Thats why you run msconfig and uncheck unwanted processes at startup ;)

    Theres that as well but just using Firefox eliminates that idea and also Firefox is the way forward :D

    It might be because of spyware/adware.

    try adaware, spybot, and/or microsoft antispyware beta.. it should get rid of it, if it keeps on coming after it says it was deleted by those programs, it is a part of the new generation of spyware which is like reinstalling spyware..

    Use SpySweeper. It has a 30 day trial.

    Also are you using a Firewall program?

    I Fixed My Problem!!!

    I Went Into My Registry And Searched For Iexplore.exe Files And Sure Enough It Found Like 50 Of Em So I Deleted All Of Em

    Then I Went Into My Files In C: Windows Prefex Or Something Like That And Deleted Iexplore.exe

    And Now Its Gone

    Or just tell the pop up blocker to block that webaddress.
