I use Mozzilla foxfire for my internet browser and I do not get any pop ups or spyware. Here is a free download if you would like to try it. http://www.mozilla.org/ I also use pop up stopper free edition. It's about half way down the page. You don't even know it's there. I have used these 2 free products a almost 4 months now and I have not had 1 single pop up. Here is a link for the pop up stopper. http://www.panicware.com/product_downloads.html Give them a try. You will be very happy with them. Again, they are both free.
