What will help stop the pop-up adds


Please help, my computer system is under attack!

Every time I open google and do a search, the first page of results is all ads - usually with "blowsearch" at the top. Then when I click "next page", I get the true first page of google search results.

Also, I am seeing chronic pop-ups. Probably close to thousands each day.

In addition, every time I open a new web page, I get a dialog box that appears and asks "This browser is trying to close, would you like to close it?" and I have to say "no" over and over and over.

I need help, this is driving me insane. I run Spybot every day, to no avail. I have downloaded Microsoft patches, to no avail.

I think a good pop-up blocker will help you with this problem, some internet providers supply you with one when you sign up, you could find a good one on the internet for free if you like.
