maddening pop-ups, computer help needed
OK, you computer savvy types. I'm desperate. I picked up one, maybe two, invasive programs/worms/buggies/whatevers that want to sell me anti-virus/spy-bot/whatever software. They pop up, literally, every couple seconds with 'warnings' and screens trying to get me to install or buy their junk. These are not listed in my programs or remove software menu. I want them out but don't know how to get rid of them. I do use AVG and Spy-Bot Search and Destroy but they didn't protect against this stuff. When I say, I'm desperate, I mean, really desperate. I had to click their pop-ups closed at least a dozen times while trying to type this. I recently had to format to get rid of garbage like this, hope formatting doesn't become a weekly or monthly necessity. I also picked up an unwanted toolbar, Security Toolbar 7.1, don't know how to get rid of that either.
p.s. One of the is called AntiVirGear
p.p.s Another one of them is called SpyWare Removal
