For the past week or so I've been experiencing a lot of annoying pop-up ads. Some open in Browser windows, others open up like the roll-over ads that you find on some web pages. Most of the web pages that open up are for www.ad-w-a-r-e.com or oas-central.realmedia.com or something like that. I've been doing a lot of reading of threads on here and other sites to try to solve this problem. Unfortunately, when it comes to this sort of thing I'm not real handy with it. I've tried running the HijackThis program that seems to be a favorite here but every time I do my McAfee pops up a virus warning and won't let it run.
I've posted as much info about my system as I can below. I really appreciate any help that can be offered to me.
Thanks in advance.
