Audio virus and RON ads pop-up

Dell Inspiron laptop with intel pentium...
July 9, 2010 at 18:50:11
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a virus or malware of some sort than neither McAfee nor Windows Defender is pickung up, It will randomly play audio ads and despite Pop-up Blocker being on, a RON ads pop-up will occur, whether I have a browser window open or not. Then, when I check in my control panel's Internet options, my pop-up blocker has been turned off!

I am not sure what to do.

There is a simple solution. Uninstall internet explorer using the in instructions in this link

However before uninstalling remember to install some other browers: Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera...

This just a practical solution, that eliminates the ads. I don't know if reinstalling internet explorer will bring back the ads.

"neither McAfee nor Windows Defender is pickung up"

McAfee is as bad as Norton, I would suggest uninstalling it and maybe using Avast Free that is much better and more maintenance free, no scheduled scans needed etc. Get Avast to do a bootscan and move all it finds to the chest

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
