    I went to Goggle.com and downloaded thier free toolbar. Part of the toolbar blocks popups and I can do a google search without going to the google page.

    I also run Norton Internet Security which is a firewall, virus protection and eliminates pop ups as well.

    I prefer The Zone Alarm firewall which stops pop ups. The Zone Alarm firewall is easier to configure than Norton, IMO. It easily allows me to tell it which sites (this one for instance) that I want to allow pop ups and which ones that I don't.

    I use Pest Patrol and it works well. Pest Patrol only deletes the cookies and spy-ware AFTER the sites that demand you except them have loaded. Also had keyboard logger detection, Memory checker, and a good easy to follow user interface. This program combined with Zone Alarm, and my anti virus software have kept all my computers safe and virus free for over 7 years. I highly recommend both of them.

    yes .. removing spy ware will speed up your computer because every time you boot up those little programs start running in the background ... waiting for you to connect to the net so they can send info about your surfing habits to the site that planted them there. Repeated system crashes and slow computer response time are often the first sign of having a mess of ad ware / spy ware etc.

    okay I downloaded a free trial of POPUP STOPPER and its working but what about prexisting popups and spyware/adware? I have ''SMILY CENTRAL'' that keeps popping up! how can I purge my system of hidden crap and what else should I have/add to help the popup software.
    Thanks a tons guys/gals. can any of you send me a link for something that will compliment POPUP STOPPER like anti spyware and something I can sweep my PC free of the existing crap.
