'New Offer For You!' Popup

Question

speedy_kevin    1

I'm not using IE, I use Opera.

But a few times a day I get a IE popup with casino or dating stuff. It always has the same title: New Offer For You!

I used spybot & ad-aware both came up with no results :( Googled it, few results but none where helpfull :(

Anyone knows wich spyware I got? And better, how to get rid of it?

IE sucks :(

Check your registry though, for any programs that load up when you boot -- might be a .exe that isn't recognized by Ad Aware.

Is anyone else using the PC?

Did you recently install any shareware or freeware programs?

Is javascipt enabled and are you using adequate blocker settings? (haven't used Opera in a long while)

Get a pop-up killer

That will only mask the problem and some have difficulty or do know good at all with nonIE browsers. If it's due to a program on the box launching popups it won't do any bit of good against it if it's also a progam that collects data.

That would help but would not cure the problem, If Adaware and Spybot have failed then try Webroots Spysweeper.

Link : Spy Sweeper

Also install SP2 this has a built in popup blocker for Internet Explorer, the update will also help alot on your machines security !

What version of Adaware and Spybot are you using? I have had a problem where the spyware was not detected, I uninstalled the old version, installed the new version, and it was picked up after a definition file upgrade.

Found it. Caused by a trial version of the newest Flashget. Only when having Flashget open I get the popups.

So i'm gonna think about buying it or deinstalling it.

Thx all :D
