Specs: Windows XP
i keep getting a message to say that i have won a iPhone 4S, ipad 2 etc. I dont know where it comes from. All i know is that in my history tab i keep seeing

When i first put my laptop is on then these messages dont appear. Its not until l connect to the internet, then its keeps on & on. even if i close the internet down, it will still continue to keep popping up and bleeping at me.

Its driving me mad. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

Try adding the address to your hosts file. (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)
Use Notepad to open the file. You should should see similar to this;

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost

#Add this;

NOTE: There is one TAB space after the to the entry you"ll make.

It's a good day when you learn something
