Here is a link to a neat freeware spyware blocker program.

I have heard it works pretty good.


Click on the download link next to an american flag.
It should start downloading right away.

I just like to help anyone block spyware and the pogs that try to get it on your system.

Let me know how it works. Thanks wink.gif

So I tried to download this program, and ever since then I have picked up a pop-up posing as a message from Microsoft telling me my computer might be infected with spyware and do I want them to scan it, yes or no? In silver lettering down at the bottom it says Advertisement.

I click no, and my screen freezes with an ad for something called Spy- Stormer. I have to control/alt/delete to unfreeze my screen.

I use Pop-Up Stopper, but it has no effect on this pop-up. Looked for the program you linked us to, but apparently my firewall kept it from loading, but now I've got this crap infecting my screen.

Any ideas?

You had to have something else on your system before you went to this site. I have gotten this downloaded about 10 times since I posted this. I suggest running Spybot or Ad-Aware since your having problems with you firewall and this site.



Ad-Aware Free




I use both Spybot and adaware.

I checked the links and there are no popups on any of these site pages.
I even donloaded them again. All clean

If you have a large enough e-mail I can send them via e-mail if you need.

You can create a hosts file in your windows directory to point certain sites to null. Here's a website that explains it as well as gives you a pre-bullt file with a lot of the more common sites that use pop-ups.

Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File

I hope this helps you.

This is a great way to block them after the fact. But I still like to get them off the system to begin with and then keep them off.

I hate the pogs that do this to peoples systems.
