    Pop-under ads (how to block them?)

    I got a new computer, and when i use the internet on this computer, i get a lot of pop-under ads. This doesnt happen on my other computer. (and i dont use something liek google toolbar to block pop-ups).

    Why are these slipping through?

    In Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options... > Privacy > Pop-Up Blocker.

    Ensure that it is ticked. I think if you go through some of the tabs it will show you more places to block pop-ups.

    Have you got virus protection and a spyware remover? Usually if you have 3rd party software, it blocks it.

    Sometimes pop-ups can be caused by a trojan dialer or related spyware which can be activated via dodgy downloads and accessing por*n sites.

    Try Hijack This! or Ad-Aware or Spybot Search & Destroy for spyware.

    Are you running Vista? Vista has Windows Defender for Virus Protection.

    Any issues, try downloading AVG 8.0. It's totally free includes spyware "watcher".
