and Spyware blocker for the PC, that is free? I have tried many things but it won't go away. Any help would be great!

PopUpStopper. Free edition for download. http://www.panicware.com

Mozilla! Download it and stop using IE. This will solve all of your problems - it bloicks pop-ups and prevents spyware from downloading too.

Mozilla Firefox will put the hurt on pop ups, and has the advantage of being less vulnerable than Internet Explorer.

For a firewall I have had the best luck with Sygate Personal Firewall, it's FREE for personal use.

For Spy Ware removal I recommend Ad Aware, it is also FREE for personal use.

I use google toolbar for popups, Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy for spyware.

I use Google toolbar for the popup blocker, plus you can search at any time, plus extras.

For spyware I use Spybot and AdAware. Find both here.

It isn't even my computer! I installed Google but I got a call today saying there were still pop ups. I am thinking about SP2. Thanks!

Yep.

Mozilla has never failed to stop a pop-up for me.

Run Adware, and Spyboy Search and Destroy and you will not have any more pop-ups and it lets your computer run faster becuase it deletes all the bots and stuff that run in the backgroung without you knwing.

I'll have to agree with the other guys that Mozilla will fix just about everything for you. I've go it on both my comps and its far ahead of IE. No more pop ups.

Had a lot of BS from IE popping up all ove my screen.

Downloaded Mozilla Firefox based off of a recomendation from here and my problems went away.

If you are running XP then Service Pack 2 is a good idea. It blocks some pop ups and updates some critical security flaws in ALL other versions of Windows.

The Google toolbar has a pop-up blocker. Takes about 2 minutes to install and set up.

What's a pop-up?

Buy a Mac, use Safari

I installed sp2, then google pop up blocker. Sp2 does such a good job...I haven't got a block on google yet!

You have "spyware/adware" on your computer. No blocker will stop it. Remove the "spyware/adware".
