I have a major prob.

I can't play bf, or anything other game without popups while ingame.

I'll walk away come back to tons of popups. I beleive i have some type of spyware. Browsing has slowed along with other things. I have seen a thread like this before with a link to fix this, but couldn't locate it. If anyone has a link or sum info to rid me of this burden, I would be very gratefull.

As soon as I finish startup i get CRAP:mad: and sum popups install themselves. I have to goto addremove to kill them.

I get bitched out because of it. EX. flying a fully loaded blackhawk, game exits then popups start. I have to close popups, restore game, and peeps are upset saying I can't fly for shit. It's giving me a bad rep.

PLease help

several things to do:

1) run your anti virus software

2) get adaware or, the one i currently use, spybot

run both programs, but be warned if you installed programs with spyware they may no longer work after those two get a hold of them.

3) if you are running win xp or 2000, disable messenger in services.

click start|run and type 'services.msc' without the quotes, then press enter. find 'messenger' and double click on it. click stop and change the startup type to 'disabled'. click ok and close the services window.

Go to WWW.PCPitStop.com and run a full test. It will give you a lot of useful info and also tell you all the programs running on your comp.
