    Everytime i log on here i get a pop-up.It says my computer may be infected with adware or spyware.It looks like it's from microsoft.but when i clicked on it ,it took me to my browser and to some other address that's not microsoft.I have adware and run it regular,just ran it before i loged on.The only time i get the pop-up is when i log on here.Doesn't do it at other sites.As far as i can tell my computer is running normal and has been.Does anyone know how to get rid of the pop-up.I have AOL-pop up blocker set to stop all pop-ups but this thing keeps showing up.Any suggestions?

    The google toolbar also works well at stopping pop ups, but I would get rid of IE and use Mozilla as your browser. You will never open IE again once you try it.
