    Check your msconfig startup and make sure thers nothing starting in the registry from startup.

    Maybe you should try and install the yahoo toolbar which aint too bad this has a pop up blocker and a antispyware scanner. Just go and install and update then run the program ...couldnt be easier.

    using XP, goto >START>RUN> type in "msconfig" without "" (lol) and goto startup tab, this shows what programs are running in the background, by unchecking the boxes will disable programs on windows bootup
