    No beba el agua

    I have trying trying to get rid of these pop ups that come from some website no beba el agua. Everytime I close Internet Explorer about 10 pop ups come up right each other. I'm pretty new to this so if anyone can please help you'll probably ave to speak to me like a kid.

    If you are stuck on using Internet Explorer then I would suggest getting the Google Tool Bar, as it works very well against popups http://toolbar.google.com/
    If you wish, and I would recomend it highly, then use a non-Microsoft browser like:
    Mozilla http://www.mozilla.org/
    Mozilla Firefox version 0.9 http://www.mozilla.org/ (Which I use)
    Opera http://www.opera.com/
    Slim Browser http://www.flashpeak.com/sbrowser/ (an IE based browser)

    All these browsers are free and work in a windows system.

    The long and short of your problem is that said site you're trying to view doesn't have popups on opening the site, it's upon closing. Turn off javascript and you'll be fine (ten to one).
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    Lol, don't drink the water.
    Is there a sum of an inifinite geometric series? Well, that all depends on what you consider a negligible amount.

    I agree with moxnix, Mozilla is the way to go. It has a built-in popup blocker. Plus it's way more secure then IE... www.mozilla.org

    Nice tut!! Quite handy for once the problem is fixed.

    Look for files called over.exe and pup.exe...delete them. If you need help looking for them, give a shout.

    Buena idea. Cuándo yo estaba en México, no podría beber el aqua...perhaps the same applies when browsing the net. When cruising questionable sites...don't drink the water. (Gotta love mixed metaphors...)
    I\'m back.
