I need some advice. After viewing an adult site last week, I noticed that all my Microsoft applications are slow to respond. Also, I begin getting pop-ups for spy detection and virus detection programs. I have recently installed a DSL line and the firewall is activated. I regularly run Adware and Spybot.
Additionally, I have been using the Google Toolbar (which was catching all pop-ups).
Even when I do not have Outlook or IE engaged, I come home to find pop-up ads on my desktop.
