Are those the Windows Messenger ones. If so all you have to do is turn the WM Service off.
1.Go to Control Panel
2.Go to Performance And Maintenance
3. go to Admin tools
4. Click on Services
5. Find the Messenger
6. Turn it off

If that doesn't work, Get MOZILLA and be happy.

Seriously though, get HiJack This. It's free, you just have to find someone to check your file log for you.

You have done a hell of a lot more that just re install Windows if you're getting popups like that...

From the looks up it, you have been probably spending a whole lot of tie on Warez sites or maybe the ghettoest free porn sites you could find..


Trafficmarketplace.com doesn't just randomly go looking for fresh installs to infect.. you usually have to actually have some interaction with one of its partners

he is absolutly right.
this is something you did.
do this:
download SP2 (it is like 200 megs)
put it on CD.
pull ethernet chord out of computer
FORMAT your computer again (don't just reinstall windows, format and reinstall)
Reinstall windowZ
Install SP2
plug in ethernet chord.
Open interweb explorer and download the remaining updates (like 2-3)
get spy bot and immunize
go along ur life.
If you get more pop ups, stop going to stupid ass web sites

If you have service pack 2, you might consider turning on the pop-up blocker...

Also - there is a program "hijackthis" or something like that - helps pull junk out of the registry which doesn't belong.

Try downloading malwarebytes or AVAST!. They are pretty good anti-malware applications and should be able to identify the root cause of your issue. It is likely you have a virus or some other soft of malware if you are getting popups without actually opening IE or Mozilla, and your computer is running slowly.

Unless you reformatted using your OEM Windows XP disk, it's also possible that the disk you used had malware already installed on it, so you basically transferred it to your disk upon the install.



Let us know how things go. Good luck man.

I used to drive a cab in an east coast city. One day I was parked near a school, and I saw a fight break out between few african-american dudes on a basketball court. It was basically one guy versus two. The two guys pulled out knives, and I thought something really bad was going to happen to the one guy. I was getting ready to call the police, when all of a sudden the one guy's mom comes running in screaming. She pulls him away by his ear. The other two black guys just fell down laughing.

While it was pretty funny, I had seen too many fights, and I honestly didn’t feel safe where I was. At that point I had pretty much decided I had it with the east coast. I decide to pick everything up and move to the west coast that day and be a cabbie out there.

Believe it or not, on the first day of my job on the West Coast, the first person to get into my cab was the same dude whose mom pulled him out of the fight. My mouth was pretty much just hanging open due to the extreme level of coincidence. I started to ask him what the hell happened, and he interrupted me mid-sentence and just said "Yo homes to Bel Air"

I think OT should institute a new rule. No bumping of threads more than 3x the year the bumper was on the forum. Seeing as the bumper has only been here for 2 months, he can only bump back from 6 months. Someone that's been here 1 year, can only go back 3.

Yeah. Instaban.
