How to get rid of pop-up windows?
I keep getting pornography pop up windows. This is happening not while I am on the internet but after I am no longer using the computer. When I come back to the computer the windows are on my monitor. We have small children and this is a great concern. I assume there must be something on my computer to let them do this. Any suggestions?
