Default Troubles...

I have had my recent build for about a few months. Most of the parts in my signature is correct. They have no problems at all. The problem is in the software.
I just got vista, don't ask me how but I just got it. Formated my harddrive and got it. It is an ultimate edition.

My problem is that when i get on firefox. I have all these pop ups that are in ie FORM AND they go to random websites.
I have ran adware software and got some rid of but it still keeps comming up. Any suggestions.
I have got rid of the sercuity pop ups.

haha can i ask ya how u got Vista? If you got it on some warez site its proberly hacked and put full of spywares in the setup. That might explain the pop ups.

On the other hand you could have agreed to sign some active x stuff on IE and then its following you everywhere.

Easist way to get rid of it? reinstall the os and don't get a hacked up one. Also stop going on porn, thats usally what gives the most spyware :P

Good job, you just installed a pirated, hacked, chock full o' spyware and adware copy of Windows Vista, since you formatted your HD, your XP is gone. Rebuy XP.

why didn't you just download the vista ultimate dvd with the paradox oem bieos emulation, its the safest one my bet is that you downloaded vista off of isohunt or btmon and those files suck, also you should stop using limewire and stuf, i recommend you reinstall and install your antivirus before you go online and it should be the first program you install on average if you go online unprotected you will get some form of maleware in ~30seconds

If it is actual popups, click Tools > Options > Content > Block popup windows > OK.

If you downloaded a pirated, hacked version of Vista... well, you get what you pay for.
