Popups randomly with popup blocker on

February 6, 2010 at 22:05:35
Specs: Windows XP
Hi recently I've gotten popups randomly in new windows and my pop up blocker is enabled. I then did a malwarebytes scan and deleted all and it worked for a few hours and its started again. I saw a few other posts as the same. Please help me through the steps to get rid of this.

Thanks

Let me get my crystal ball out again....
Hmmm....I wonder what browser you are using
My crystal ball just crashed, can you maybe offer some clues on the above? Your post doesn't give any information of what you are asking.

Have you tried using IE7? The built in pop-up blocker works great

its not real pop ups, its like a redirecting virus that pops up when ever i go to a site or type something and comes up in a whole new window, this includes firefox, chrome and IE browsers that has happened in. I will take a screenshot to show you guys what it looks like.

is just an example of what it can look like. Its random ads of everything from college degrees to prizes. It can be triggered by idling on a site or typing a few letters or visiting a site like in the picture, i was visiting a local weather site and it popped up. i would like to get rid of this annoyance if anyone can help.
