OFF TOPIC - Pop ups and spyware RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Please help. I can't get online without more than 30 popups! Popup blocker is on. Everytime I go into internet options and try to set my cookie preferences to high blocking, a few minutes later it's back down to allow all cookies. A freind said itwas probally a virus and definatley spyware that keeps throwing up popups. But, no matter how many times I've run complete scans on onecare, it says everythings fine! What can I do? I don't want my kids getting nasty popups while they're playing willie wonka?!?
