Default pop-ups?

Why am i getting pop-ups?

I havent seen these in 3 years...!

I have Internet Explorer 6, with Pop-up Blocker on High setting..

Which is the best pop-up blocker, i will pay for it if there is no free ones.

well i was surfing "bad" stuff, and got a few.

I installed Google Toolbar, is that okay for blocking pop-ups?

o "those pop ups". It's most likely spyware. Considering you use IE see Explorer Destroyer.

You don't have messenger service enable do you? Alot of advertisement was done exploiting this service, that's why in XP it was disable by default, however older OS had it enable.

I like google toolbar if I am using IE6, but I usually just install Firefox for my main browsing.

Explorer Destroyer will change that hopefully. Not sure if end users will like it but it's for the best.
