I'm not sure how/why a new HDD would cause that, it may just be a coincidence. It sounds as if you're browser has been hijacked, and it's a tough fix.

I had a similar issue a few months ago. My browser was "hi-jacked", and I started getting little pop-ups even when I wasn't surfing. If I left my internet connection on, I would come back hours later and find like 30-40 pop-ups. It would screw up my gaming as well. I tried various ways to cure it, and ended up doing what it says below. Presto! No more problems.

You may not like this solution, but I find that re-installing windows on a freshly formatted drive cures all the wierd little problems that you can spend hours, days or even weeks trying to solve. It usually only takes a couple of hours to get it done including updating drivers and re-installing critical programs. I usually do it a couple of times a year to restore my pc's performance as it makes a noticeable difference afterwards.

Good luck with it.

Thats will solve 90% of the problems that arent hardware related. But for some people formating and re-installing is not an option. In this case I would get a hold of a decent antivirus program such as Norton or Sophos and an Anti-Spy Scanner such as Ad-aware or Microsoft Antispy. Install and UPDATE to ensure the current deffinitions are installed then run a scan. 9 times outta 10 something will come up, and it sounds like your computer may be infected with either ... Thats the best I can do ... sorry

Oblivious those are exactly all of my problems....maby this is a answer to this problem also...i have 3 hdd drives a usb 200 gig which is not currupt...a 160 gig hdd..and a 20 gig which may be currupt...HOW i do not know i installed norton antivirus which i think may have been the original problem norton fliping deleted some file and made the hdd currupt..every time i started my computer..XP loades then BAM!! BSOD (blue screen of death) my father then bought me a new hdd and installed XP on it...the the only thing i had on my hdd i didnt want to lose was my music...so my father connected the hdd to my mother board so i could retreive my music..well with in 5 hours my comp was LOADED with popups and bad things like this..and every time i run ad-ware it shows that there were hi-jacked attempts..so i quess i see if these ideas work ...i'll have a replay in about a day or 2...:beer:

I had a problem with the game alt-tab-ing out to desktop, with the game still running. It happened about every 10-20 minutes. Come to find out, it happened to be Yahoo messenger. As soon as i closed it down, the problem went away. Just FYI. Gunny.
