I use Opera 7.
"Accept pop-ups" is on but no Google pop-up for me, co.uk or .com
Did you try the new Adaware 6? It finds somethings the old one didn't.
Try Spybot Search and Destroy; it will find things that Adaware misses. You've got something lurking in your computer that needs to be found and rooted out.
Adaware 6 gets to a certain folder in my C drive and stops dead. No matter how many times I've tried it its always the same.
It's weird. I get the same thing. I get pop-ups whenever i enter Google. I get them nowhere else where you wouldn't expect them.
I like to think that I'm pretty scumware-savvy and seem to spend half my life fighting the scumware battle, so I'm pretty sure I'm not infected with anything obvious.
Spybot did the job. It found much more than Adaware 6.0
It's still weird why it only did the pop-up on google.
Webspinner... did spybot detect where the popups originated? I recall Google having a page that specifically said they 'did not,' and 'would not' do popups.
Then went on to explain that if a popup occurred during Google, that it was a time-delay, or another company initiating the ad.
Before we leave the subject dangling, I just was curious to see that it was indeed something other than from Google.
You're welcome, webspinner. I started using it after my son picked up Xupiter from a game cheat site in a drive-by download via active-x, and Adaware couldn't remove it. Active-x is now disabled on my machine and I scan with spybot regularly.
As netguy asked, did you find out who was causing the pop-ups?
spyware - such as "save.exe" monitor your habits - when you go to google and search the spyware will trigger a pop-up... save.exe comes with Kazaa
Google does not do pop-ups...
BTW - it may not be "save.exe" but something like it
My bad.. I did notice the name..Think it was Fun something. I don't think it was Google, but something I picked up, but it only poped up when I opened up IE for the first time and Google is my HP. I did a test using WebmasterWorld as the HP, and it did not happen, so I though "THOSE SONS-A-B" LOL.
I suppose I have to use both S/W now when checking for spyware..
Would be great if google had a java based spy-wear scanner (as long as it didnt block a couple of my affiliate links lol) on their site.
