ok here goes, out of nowhere i have a new home page that i didnt select and i have a popup ad that causes my screen to freeze, and it kicks me off the internet. the popup is a porn site i know, the icon is of a woman and all it says is free xxx. i've tried to delete this icon by right clicking the mouse, it says i need to go to add/remove programs to completely delete it but when i go there i dont know what this program is named, all it says is freexxx and i dont see anything there similar to that. i just recently downloaded the anti-spy toolbar from yahoo, and i ran a scan earlier and it showed several things that they recommended me to remove, so i did. but it wasnt this porn site, i've tried to go and set a new home page, but when i click back on it to see if it worked(internet options)it automactically goes back to the one that's on there now, which i didnt choose, i just assume that this is related. hopefully this will ring some bells with someone, and you'll have some advice on how to help me get this porn crap off my system. it pops up everytime i get on the internet, normally several times, i cant figure it out. remember im a novice when it comes to these things, so any advice you can give me i greatly appreciate. ohh i have windows xp, on a compaq 7500. hopefully this helps.
