go to add/remove programs if you can find the spyware on there remove it, or search for it on your computer flies, or if you have anti-virus do a virus scan. then if that works get a anti-virus program, and mozilla firefox or another trustworthy internet browser.

if you have got alot of time burn or put your files on a particianed hard-drive - you'll need all your motherboard cd, sound card, grafics card cd's etc. just format. i do all the time. put in ya windows xp cd and find 'New installation' it removes all ya files and re-installs windows - then you put all ya mp3's back etc. i do it a fair bit to make sure me pc is quick. if you dont have windows xp *shrug*

Yeah, You wont lose your files, (Microsoft XP version.)

After that remove IE from your comupter so it does not happen again.

I had to system restore my computer dozens of times because of IE popups.....}:T
