Not only do I know nothing about cycling I also dont know much about computers.
Anyhows I am getting pop ups with every site I goto. This is something new for this machine.
Is there something I can do to eliminate the pop ups? Please make it easy on me LOL

|I'm sure that this site likes the revenue these ads bring in, but does anyone really buy anything based on popups? At the least they annoy me and I ignore them--at the most I hate the company that makes me look at them.|

|Or you could quit using the security-hole ridden Internet Exploder. Download this little gem of a browser ( http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firebird/releases/0.7/MozillaFirebird-0.7-win32.zip ) and you can block all pop-ups by going to the Tools menu, select Options and then go to Web Features and check Block Popup Windows.|

|I need to develop for that evil platform.|

|Do you see them for every site? They aren't that ubiquitous, so you may have had some obnoxious software slyly stashed on your computer.
I have had good luck ferreting this crap out with http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
